What is a Harman Nucleus Titan?

Business as usual, I would expect. I’d be very surprised if it wasn’t. After all, newer generations of the Intel NUC did not introduce Roon features that weren’t available on older generations.

Ah, thanks, I had trouble finding it on Google but forgot about CES.

Edit: It would be nice if they talked more about the computer hardware and less about the wood enclosure made for display and admiration.

I mean, if it handles the most giant libraries and one has cash to spare and no interest in building a monster PC, why not. Looking at pretty things is nice, and we get fewer “my Roon is slow with 1000000 tracks” posts. Win-win :slight_smile:

It’s Roon Policy not to talk about the internal specs - “It’s an appliance, not a PC”. We’ll just have to wait for the teardown… :grinning:

It makes sense in a way, but I’d at least liked to see an estimate about how big we are talking, similar as the info published for the Nucleus

I’m sure the relevant Help Article will eventually get updated to take account of the Titan…

I’m just curious when I read “most voluminous”

I love monster PCs. For $3,700, it would be a heck of a monster.

Given the storage options, it probably means 8TB of music? Of course, you could use external storage (DAS or NAS), but then, it wouldn’t be as admirable.

Titan? What is clearly needed is a special ‘Grateful Dead’ edition to cope with that groups live output. Deadhead sticker on the front of course.

This sounds like great news to me. What I see is that harman is making a non-trivial investment in marketing, making a big splash at a high-visibility event. They are making a premium product aimed at an elite market, while still supporting us plebes, and meybe bringing in new high-roller revenues to subsidize more development. For now I’m pleasantly surprised and cautiously optimistic.

Nucleus “Titan???!!!” Did nobody at Roon/Harman read the news last year? That said, appropriate name I guess for an overpriced toy for rich people.

Which news last year, one of the best selling iPhones ever?

At $3700, no thanks. :-1:

Although quite short of technical details (well, other than the case) at least the price is revealed. Tells me something
