New Nucleus Titan?

Extraction and analysis as processes are one-time, correct. But they both seemingly leave data in roon´s internal database which in my understanding has to be crawled and searched for matches every time a page is compiled, may it be an artist’s or composer´s page, an album or a composition list. That is pretty computing-intense, exponentially more with increasing references between local entities in roon´s database.

But once extracted, I can’t see why the metadata and analsys results should be any different from the ones coming from WAV or FLAC or any other format.

I do not have any explanation for that phenomenon. Maybe these particular formats create more of data to be crawled and searched just like the boxsets and unidentified albums do with internal metadata?

The only thing I know if your roon system suffers from sluggishness due to the aforementioned parameters, throwing more computing speed at that definitely helps. q.e.d.

Two days into my Titan Stone and my Nucleus Plus is 100% getting shipped in for exchange credit.

Well done, Roon!

Were you stoned when you purchased it? :thinking: :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Hopefully you are placing it somewhere where it is seen and not heard

The centre area looks like it will be a dust collector extraordinaire.
Have you one of these at the ready :wink:

Someone said the face plate is detachable, so it may be dishwasher safe.

:rofl: I think dusting would be easier and better for it in the long run.

Not if you use a special additive during the drying cycle. It is well known in the audiophile world that the electric properties of the server’s case have a big impact on sound quality.

A product opportunity Snake Oil Rinse Aid , I can think of hundreds of uses :smiling_imp:

I’ve used rinse aid in my home made record cleaning fluid as a surfactant.

I always thought it was a mild acid with surfactant , maybe descales the record too !

Dr Google says …

Rinse aid compositions in accordance with the invention comprise **a low foaming ethoxylated nonionic surfactant, normally an organic chelating agent, a water soluble magnesium, zinc, tin, bismuth or titanium salt and an aqueous solubilising system

Not sure I want to use it now

I also had a Roon Nucleus+ that died just out of warranty. Big disappointment have spending $3500 for the unit two years ago. I have seen multiple posts about this and would be interested in understanding what the failure rate for Roon Nucleus is after 2 years. Do you have a view on this?

@Scott_Lonning Got mine march 2018, Rev A obviously , still going fine… hopefully not just jinxed things :confused:
