Congratulations and Excellent Job Roon Team.
Going DIY + ROCK. Here is my configuration: Suggestions ??
1) Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i5SYH
2) Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR4-2133 SODIMM NUC Memory
3) Intel® SSD 600p Series (256GB, M.2 80mm PCIe 3.0 x4, 3D1, TLC)
– Do I need more than 256GB? Is Roonlab team suspecting needing more than this?
4.1) Planning for Internal Storage than go NAS. Will it be only spinning HDD? Can I have SDD for its 2.5
4.b) Alternatively Can I go 3) above to 1TB and have both ROCK, ROON and also Music files onto it ?
4.c) Optane - This seems to be good one. However, will it be only for M.2 or 2.5" slots purposed for SSDs
4.d) Or for now i go with 1-3, start ROCK and add external HDD for now, until something comes up for bulk storage on SSD.
IMO only -> I hate Roon to pick up files from NAS for music. I feel its too slow, wear and tear etc (whatever, wired or not ETH, I simply hate NAS for audio usage - SORRY FOLKS in advance. dont beat me here ) I m little frustrated now. I will still have NAS for storage only and not for LIVE streaming.
