Hi, I know I can use a Mac Mini as a core, but how about buying an old(late 2012) model to use it as a core now? I mean, will it work? And how long will it last?
New iMacs are very expensive, and I can buy a used old model for rather cheap. NUC’s are very expensive here as well, and there’s no used market for those yet.
Do you think it’s worth it? My library is not that large, about 600GB. And I have a high res solution right now, that works with my iPhone/iPad with a Dragonfly RED and I get top quality with that. My library is stored in OneDrive and I listen to it with a iOS cloud player. It sound ok, Tidal sounds a little better.
But what I really want is the Roon interface.
So, is it worth to create a core with an old Mac mini (late 2012)? I don’t think it has a M2 SSD, it does comes with an SSD, but I don’t know if it’s M2.
Thanks for any advice.
