Sorry to be a noob, but if anyone could help me out with a quick question I’d be really grateful.
I’m currently using an Apple Mac to play Roon going directly into a USB DAC. I’m looking to upgrade by taking my Mac out of the system and swapping it with a MacMini, using the USB out on that to go into my DAC, and controlling Roon with an iPad.
My question is, does this MacMini have to be my Roon Core, or can I keep my core on my Mac and use my iPad to send the music on my Mac to my MacMini, and from there into the DAC? I ask because my Mac has 1TB of storage, whereas the MacMinis come in either 256 or 512GB. I’d like to buy the 256 option if I can keep the storage side of things on the Mac.
Thanks for the help, and stay safe!
