StormAudio partners with madVR and KEF wireless speakers go Roon Ready

StormAudio has announced that it has joined madVR Labs’ ‘Certified for Envy’ program in the AVR/AVP category as an initial certified partner. The program ensures that AV products meet madVR Labs’ quality standards for video performance. Certified products should not introduce video artifacts or degrade video quality. They also have to become fully compatible with the madVR Envy Pro and Envy Extreme video processors.

“We are truly honored that StormAudio has entrusted madVR Labs to certify their products for video excellence and are excited to have them as a launch partner in our Certified For Envy program,” says Richard Litofsky, Co-founder and CEO of madVR Labs, LLC.

Requirements for the AVR/AVP category include reliable and stable HDMI handling and full compatibility with madVR Envy video processors. Lossless pass-through of all usual source device pixel formats, bit depths, resolutions, and frame rates (such as 1080p 24-frame-packed 3D) are also mandated. The StormAudio products have to pass over 1,100 rigorous tests to achieve certification. For details on the tests performed and the program requirements, see the StormAudio certificate here.

“With today’s jungle of video formats, the madVR Envy processor brings the ultimate video experience that matches our StormAudio immersive sound processor performance,” said Sébastien Gailleton, Head of Product and Support for StormAudio.

KEF has announced that its LS60 wireless floorstanders (pictured above) and LSX II wireless music system are now officially Roon Ready. Roon’s streaming technology is built-in and both models have been certified by Roon Labs to provide the “highest level of quality and performance” in network streaming.
