I am approaching 10,000 albums and 100,000 tracks on my Roon Nucleus, the published upper limits of the device.
Today, graphics are loading slowly or not at all. Is that a function of reaching the upper limits or something else?
Regardless, I’m probably a candidate for a new device.

Before getting a whole new device, you might try upgrading your RAM. If you have 4 go to 8, if you have 8 go to 16. It is a relatively cheap upgrade to do and might extend the life of your current device.

Great point! I have the base Nucleus. How do I know how much RAM it has? Any suggestions on which RAM to get?

Greetings! I wanted to update this post as I went ahead and upgraded the RAM today on the nucleus plus. I added in two 8 GB RAM sticks by Crucial/Micron. The process is super easy taking less than five minutes from start to finish which included taking it off the audio rack, opening it up, switching out the ram, and putting it back on the rack, plugging everything back in. Will be interested to see if the performance gains remain after several days of use, but it only took a few seconds to note…
This entire thread may be of interest. The COO comments on RAM and performance.
I found this interesting. It suggests running in dual channel might bring some benefits, but not for the reasons I thought.
