FS: NUC5i3 ROCK server

(simon_pepper) #1

Intel NUC NUC5i3RYH (Silver/Black) based ROCK server

Bean Canyon model NUC with 8GB RAM (2x4GB SIMMs) and 240GB m.SATA SSD.
Running latest Intel BIOS and ROCK software

Will include the Roon trial I received with the UltraRendu, as I didn’t use it - so a perfect Roon starter.

Ready to go as a dedicated ROCK based Roon Core server - all built and confirmed operational - just needs a Roon Licence or Trial activation.

I am running a similar NUC5i3 based ROCK server with 6K+ albums, 80k+ tracks to multiple zones without issue, and also runs most DSP functions.

£200/€225/$250 ono + shipping (make me a sensible offer)
Delivery to UK/Europe/US - though ships with UK plug to ‘Cloverleaf’ on a Laptop style multi-voltage PSU (110/240)

Easy way (& cheaper, a bare bones NUC without RAM & SSD is more than this amount) to get a dedicated server for Roon Core with reported SQ benefits over a multi-purpose PC/Mac.

Cheapest install of ROCK
New Core Machine?
Is my 2011 iMac suitable for Roon?

With a forum member building a NUC8i3BEK based ROCK server for £285, I will drop this server down to:

£150. €160, $175 + shipping

Any interest? If not, it will be going onto eBay

Can include a Roon Trial code with this ROCK server
