I use headphones directly connected to the MacBook Pro via an AudioQuest Cobalt USB DAC
Under 2500 tracks
I use my MacBook to run Roon and I listen through headphones. My Mid 2015 MacBook is an I7 2.5 quad core with 16GB of DDR3 Ram and a Radeon R9 M370X with 2GB of memory. My OS is BigSur 11.6.6. Temperatures immediately peak when I open Roon to over 90C and the fans ramp up to 5000rpm or more. The Activity Monitor indicates 200% CPU use. Shutting down Roon immediately reverses the temperature level, fan speed and CPU usage.
Is my Mid 2015 Mac Book pro insufficiently powerful to run Roon?
