Celebration Giveaway 48: ROON!

We continue our $50k gear giveaway with something different this time – ROON! Just keep reading and enter the giveaway!


Last week’s Winners

The Hifiman Ananda giveaway is now over and it was a huge hit! The lucky guy/girl this week is Frode Ones from Norway. You will be contacted very shortly by email (check your spam folder), so make sure to get in touch.

Number 48

As promised and explained earlier, we’ll be doing a year long of weekly giveaways and last September was the start of our 52-week celebration. For this 48th round of the biggest audio giveaway the world has ever seen, we’re giving away year subscription to ROON!! The ROON software is worth $119USD! This incredible software we all use here at Headfonia can become yours and all you have to do is … sign up and leave a comment saying what software you now use on your laptop/pc/phone to listen to music to.

But first, let’s look at Roon and the software you can win.

About ROON Labs and ROON

If you’ve been following Headfonia and read our reviews then you for sure have stumbled upon the fact that we use ROON software and ROON devices in our setups. If you still have no clue what ROON is and why you really need it, then all you have to do is read the following two articles.

Our ROON review:

BLOG: Roon – Overdue revolution

And this interview with the good people at ROON:

Q ‘n A Saturday: Roon Labs

In short, ROON is what you need at home and it perfectly integrates streaming services such as Tidal and Qobuz. It also connects flawlessly with Roon ready devices in your setup, making the system complete. I couldn’t live without it anymore.


The lucky winner will get his/her “code/account” sent directly by ROON.

In order to enter the competition you need to do the following steps:

  • Fill out the form on the page linked below. Use a real full name/surname to enter the contest (partial name entries are no longer accepted) + real email address as this is the address we will use to contact the winner
  • Leave a comment on this post you’re reading here. Any comment is good but I prefer you telling me what software you use on your laptop/pc/phone to listen to music to.

And while you’re at it like the Hifiman and ROON Facebook pages HERE and HERE, if you haven’t already.

The winner will be chosen at random out of those that completed all 2 steps!

After signing up you’ll get a personal link to share. For each new participant that enters via your personal link on Twitter, Google+ or Facebook, etc. you get an extra chance to win!  Make sure you share/use the referrer link! By entering the giveaway you agree to the rules shown under the “ENTER” button

Participants will be contacted by email after subscribing, so by participating all entrants also accept us to email them. Do check your spam folder, but if you didn’t get an email you’re still entered. (Gmail addresses receive it slow/late! Don’t request us to check your entry)

The winner of the ROON software will be announced next Monday as usual. That means you have till Sunday evening to enter this Roon giveaway!

Thank you ROON for doing this with us! Good luck to everyone!

    I usually use Foobar2000. It sounds good, and has just about the file handling features I need. Don’t stream any audio from the internet, but I hear Roon is pretty good.
