I am waiting on the delivery of a new fanless case for my NUC7i7BNB NUC running ROCK. It currently has a Samsung 250GB NVMe SSD installed along with Crucial 2x4gb 2133 DDR4 ram. I have a Qobuz subscription and around 5k albums stored on my Synology DS918+ NAS. I also run HQ Player on my desktop PC.
So, to access albums currently the NUC accesses the NAS over ethernet and it works pretty well, but I have started wondering whether I should add a futher new SSD into the NUC as music storage with the NAS then relegated to back-up duties.
The main reason for doing this would be speed and that is my main question, would installing a good quality SSD into the NUC improve performance? Its not exactly slow now, but a ‘punchier’ experience is always welcome.
I have posted this in tinkering as it seems the most appropriate place.
