I’ve been running Roon Server on a Synology DS1019+ NAS which has an Intel Celeron CPU and I bumped it 16GB ram. The NAS works flawlessly feeding audio and video files to various endpoints in the household including Plex, Sonos, Bluesound, AppleTV, Mojo/Poly etc. But when ROON comes into play it can get a tad spotty, especially with high-res 24-bit files.75% of the “zones” are ethernet and remaining are wireless via ASUS AI mesh.
So now I decided I’ll invest a bit into the software. So I just purchased/ordered an Intel NUC 10 and will get ROON ROCK set up on that. I figure the benefits of a “beefier” and dedicated Core i7 with its own 16GB DDR4 ram for ROON might make a difference to overall performance and the NAS can stay strictly as a media storage/library feeder.
I see there’s a FAQ on transferring between cores. Is there any other advice I should heed?
