I was thinking to build my own NUC based on this barebones system:
I can get Lora with a 3G I9 CPU and 32GB or Memory, and 512GB NVMe for around $1700
I’ll buy 4TB Samsung EVO SSD’s for about $350 each and I can have a killer NUC. The system has slots for up to 5 SSD drives so for another $1700 I could have 20TB of SSD storage!
I thought to buy it without any OS (Windows 10 is $120) and then install Ubuntu or even Centos and then look for the Roon package. I know it will be some work, but got Roon Core running on Synology a while ago so can’t be too bad.
Any thoughts on this? Am I crazy? Am I going to kick myself for trying to build my own Roon Core NUC? Can I buy an equivalent NUC pre-configured with Roon and then add my own SSD Drives?
BTW: I’m pretty good with HW/SW/Linux … but just wondering if there is something better I can start with …
