Roon is a platform that brings all your music together. To some audiophiles, Roon’s audio engine ideally fits their standards and offers the best performance. Likewise, streaming services can give you different yet top musical experiences, such as Dolby Atmos, Tidal’s HiFi and MQA, and Amazon Music HD. If you are a Tidal fan, you can directly explore the world of Tidal with Roon. While luck is against Amazon Music users since there is no Roon Amazon Music integration. But the Internet often brings you endless possibilities. I mean, you can get the viable methods to integrate Amazon Music and Roon from this article and then use Amazon Music in tandem with Roon.
Part 1. Does Roon Work with Amazon Music?
Quite a few users are wondering “Does Roon work with Amazon Music?” Unfortunately, the answer is negative. Up to now, only Tidal and Qobuz work with Roon. So it is not even a question of a subscription. With Amazon Music Unlimited, you can not only stream Amazon Music in HD/Ultra HD quality but download songs in HD quality. Amazon HD Music is close to CD quality streaming 16-bit audio at a bit rate of 850kpbs and a sample rate of 44.1kHZ. But there is no official way to connect Amazon Music and Roon.
Don’t despair. Roon enables you to add local audio files to it for playing. It supports mono, stereo, and multichannel content in these formats: MP3, WAV, WAV64, AIFF, FLAC, Apple Lossless, OGG, and AAC at resolutions up to 32-bit and 768kHz. Plus, Roon doesn’t support audio content with DRM. That is to say, you can download Amazon Music as DRM-free local files and then put them on Roon.
Part 2. How to Make Amazon Music Compatible with Roon
From the aforementioned method, to get Roon Amazon Music, what you need to do is save Amazon Music as local files. However, due to DRM protection, all downloads from Amazon Music are caches and can’t be opened with any media player including Roon. So you have to draw support from a third-party tool like Tunelf Amatune Music Converter to help you download songs from Amazon Music in Roon-supported formats and remove the DRM restriction.
Tunelf Amazon Music Converter is a professional converting tool as well as DRM removal designed for Amazon Music users. It supports outputting Amazon Music in MP3, AAC, M4A, M4B, FLAC, and WAV.

For playing Amazon Music on Roon, Tunelf allows you to adjust the audio channel between Mono and Stereo. Given that Roon is a music manager managing all your music files, Tunelf keeps all original ID3 tags after conversion so you can easily organize your Amazon Music on Roon.
