How Roon works

Roon is built differently than most audio systems.
Roon consists of a single core and as many controls and outputs as you need. This means you get the same Roon experience whether you’re running on a single PC or on devices around your home.

The Core

A Roon system starts with a core – it’s the traffic cop, the housekeeper, and the brains behind the operation.

PC storage
USB storage
Roon metadata
iTunes library

The core manages your music collection from many sources, and builds an interconnected digital library using enhanced information from Roon.

The core can be your Mac or Windows PC, or a server from one of our hardware partners.

Roon requires a Core of recorded music to work with so is a little different from the other streaming services. It integrates very well with Tidal. Go to the to learn more.

Deezer lets you play the music you just have to hear, instantly.

How do I experience the benefits of Qobuz?

Three ways to discover millions of tracks in the best quality possible

Stream — Qobuz is your source for the best sound quality and unlimited listening, anytime, everywhere, on all your devices. Download — you can also buy your favorite albums and tracks in Hi-Res in our online store. Both — Qobuz is the only music platform offering a plan that includes both streaming and downloads.

MQA is a new and revolutionary digital encode/decode process that starts out in the mastering studio and then unfolds in your music player to give you to studio performance through your system The Magnum Dynalab streaming devices and high definition DAC’s have this built in.

MQA captures 100% of the original studio performance. It then cleverly adapts to deliver the highest quality playback your product can support.

After capturing the performance, MQA folds the file to make it small enough to stream.
We call this ‘Music Origami’.

MQA can be fully approved in the studio. With our studio toolset, all playback scenarios can be previewed.

Explore different levels of ‘unfold’

MQA will play back on any device to deliver even higher than CD-quality. 

MQA Core Decoder

This unfolds the MQA file once to deliver even higher than CD-quality. It is included in some products with digital outputs such as Bluesound, Pioneer and Onkyo players, as well as streaming services such as TIDAL and media players like Audirvana.

The first unfold recovers all the direct music-related information. Output is 88.2kHz or 96kHz.

MQA Renderer

These products feature an MQA renderer which can complete the final unfold. Renderers can be great portable products such as USB DACs.

An MQA Renderer will include ‘stream lock’ but is not able to decode an MQA stream or authenticate it.

MQA Full Decoder

Products with a full MQA Decoder unfold the file to deliver the highest possible sound quality. At this level of playback you are hearing what the artist created in the studio – with precise file and platform specific DAC compensation and management.

Hi End Munich 2018

We have just returned from another very successful showing at the Munich Hi-Society Show. We along with Alan Shaw of Harbeth and Bernd Homke of Input Audio, our distributor in Germany, entertained thousands of consumers and trade visitors to our display room. We once again featured Martina Schoener with her L’Art du Son turntable to wide acclaim.

Magnum Dynalab demonstrated our MD309 integrated Hybrid Amplifier with our MD107T FM Tuner in conjunction with the very fine Harbeth 40.2 Anniversary Edition speakers. Once again we received many accolades and glowing reviews of our presentation. This is particularly rewarding since we don’t display a mega dollar system but one that is very real world accessible. We were also happy to show our new Magnum Dynamyte products and the concept for our new MDS800 series internet tuners and streamers.

We would like to thank our many visitors for stopping in and our show partners and the many reviewers that congratulated us on the fine sounding system.
