Hi, I have recently purchased a Life Membership of the 64bit Windows Roon (Control, Core + Output) software package for my main stereo system comprising Antipodes DX music server (that is enabled with a manufacturer installed Roon Server + Roon Ready packages installed) feeding FLAC 44.1kHz 16bit PCM data to a dCS972 D/D upsampler unit, feeding a dCS Elgar DAC, feeding a pair of monoblock power amplifiers. Music is playing fine through this system setup as-is using the Roon platform.
As a backup for my Antipodes DX music server, I have recently purchased and installed a Synology DS916+ NAS for storage of all my music and other media files. I wish to use the Synology NAS as an alternate standalone Roon Server (Control, Core + Output) for those occasions when the Antipodes Music Server is not in use (switched off completely), so as to enable Roon playback to other devices around the house.
As a novice Roon user, I would like to have your guidance and recommendations regarding the following issues:
Will de-authorizing the Roon-configured Antipodes DX server result in the deletion of my existing Roon Database on the Antipodes DX (is this action recommended for when the Antipodes Server is switched off completely)? and;
If so, how many times can I de-authorize and/or re-authorize my Roon-Server devices in a given time period?
I would appreciate your invaluable guidance as to the recommended procedures to achieve the aforementioned user objectives, and any configuration/setup improvements on the Roon experience (if any). At any one time, only one Roon-Server will be in use. The Antipodes DX music server is only turned on for special listening sessions during which time the NAS Roon-Server will be de-authorized.
