Mac Mini Late 2012 Roon 2.0 Crashing

I’m having similar issues.

Roon Core Machine

Mac mini (late 2012), 2.3 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core I7, 16 GB RAM, Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7

Networking Gear & Setup Details

Asus RT-AC88U Router

Mini is connected via ethernet.

Connected Audio Devices

microRendu (ethernet) - feeds Lyngdorf TDAI-2170

Raspberry Pi (ethernet) - Feeds Cary Cinema 12 Processor

Chromecast Audio (4 total wireless) - Feeds Peachtree M40, Peachtree Deep Blue, Cary Cinema 12, and Lyngdorf TDAI-2170

Wiim Mini (wireless) - feeds Lyngdorf TDAI-2170

Number of Tracks in Library


Majority of library via Tidal. I have an assortment of ALAC, FLAC, and even a handful of DSD tracks stored on Drobo connected to the Mac Mini via thunderbolt.

Description of Issue

Roon 2.0 runs very slow and ultimately crashes. It appears there may be a memory leak as the Mac mini reports low resources as Root runs over time. Eventually it crashes and I get a massive crash report that I can share later.

Hey @Eric_Taylor,

I’ve split your response into a new thread for better visibility. If you could please upload the full system crash log here:

That would be helpful. Thank you!
