I would like to set up roon, so I can access my music anywhere in my home with any device. How would I best accomplish that?
Right now Roon Server runs on my MacBook Pro, which means, I cannot use the software unless I open the MacBook. So, for example I cannot use roon to listen from my iPhone when lying in bed, without getting my computer first.
So, I am thinking of getting a Mac Mini as the server and having some drives attached to it with most of the music on them.
But then the Mac Mini would always have to be on and not in sleep mode. That would probably seriously limit its life expectancy. So how do you suggest being able to have a server set up that can be accessed anytime from multiple rooms? What do other users usually do? It seems to me the great power of this system would be that I have a server running Roon and many places from which to access the software any time. But how do i accomplish this?
(I would like to stay in the Mac/iOs universe if possible as I’ve not kept up on the Windows OS for many years)
