Found a good deal on a NUC8i7BEH with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. I’m not super happy with the speed/performance on my QNAP NAS. The NUC comes set up with Win10. Two questions.
- How best to install Roon should I just start fresh and lose my history and playlists? This won’t make me happy but if it is the best solution I’m fine with that. If back up and restore is the way to go anything special to know ahead of time?
- Anything to be aware of with the ROCK install. On the QNAP I just went to the app center and installed it. Being that Win10 is on the NUC will ROCK download just do its thing and kill off Windows? I’m not worried about losing the Win10 license, no plans to use it for anything besides Roon.
Can I expect faster connects between Android Phone and Roon during playback, faster browsing of Discover/Artist/Genre/etc. more responsive volume control with the 8th gen i7. How about less time between all of the annoying “squiggly Roon progress thingy” overall?
