Today my setup is fairly straightforward:
HTPC running RoonServer only, connected to my Hi-Fi via a USB DAC
I use a Surface Pro device with Roon installed as a remote control
Everything works fine
Now, I am thinking off replacing my HTPC with an Auralic Aries, and I take it that Auralic Aries would then be roon-ready as a roon endpoint. What does this do to my architecture? I don’t want to setup RoonServer on my NAS (I am not sure I can either), where would the roon core run in this scenario? On the Surface Pro I guess?
