FAQ: How to Contact Roon Technical Support

The best place to go for technical support is our Community site. This is where we've dedicated an entire category, Support, for the Roon technical team to help troubleshoot any technical issues you may run into.

Why our community site?

After exploring multiple options to offer technical support, we've discovered we can be most efficient in a community setting. While you'll still be getting one-to-one support from one of our technicians, other Roon team members can also take a look: our QA and Engineering teams, our Product team, Technical team and even our C-level team are known to chime in and help. Not only that, but a community post can also help us understand how widespread an issue is and take the appropriate steps for all of our customers.

This section would not be complete if we didn't mention the thousands of Roon subscribers that hang out on the community. Many of them know Roon inside out and a number of them are experts in the audio world. A simple skimming of the posts on the community site will undeniably reveal how helpful their actions are.


Before you start, make sure you log in on our Community Site. We're using single sign on authentication - this means you'll be using the email and password you've created when signing up with Roon to log in.

      This is where you can explain what’s wrong and how frequently it happens: is it "every time" you perform an action or is it sporadic? If the latter, please specify the approximate time it happened last.
