Hello, I am new to the world of digital music and my IT skills aren’t great. I used Roon at the dealers and prefer its functionality over the native app. I would like to go down the Roon route. Currently all my files are stored on my pic but I am looking to get a NAS for them. I would like to run Roon off the NAS I think as it would save me having my computer on all the time. There is also the advantage that I can use a wired connection rather than a power line. I have a few questions.
I know Roon recommend the QNAP TVS 471 but I was wondering if the TS 451 would be OK? Does any one have any experience.
If I get a 4 bay NAS I inderstand that Roon should run on one disc and the music library should be on another one, with RAID 1. When I set this up is this going to be straightforward enough for someone with limited IT skills. I am not sure how it all works and if it is easy to set up my cd ripper to drop files in a specific part of the NAS.
If this is all going to be tricky to do, would it be much easier to install Roon on a computer and just point it to the library on a 2 bay NAS, a cheaper short term option?
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
