Plan is to install Linux, use this for both storage (upgrade from current Raspberry Pi + external USB drive), for Roon core. Library currently stands at 7,500 track, 66GB, though I’m only halfway through ripping my CD collection to FLAC.
Overkill? Any thoughts on running storage and core in this way?
I don’t want to spend on a separate NAS and intend to run the drives as RAID1 with weekly incremental backups to the old Pi+USB drive. I expect the NUC to perform some other general-purpose computing and NAS duties, and possibly host my Plex server (or could keep that on the Pi).
