Hello, I have just setup my NUC and it is working great compared to what I was using, my daily iMac with an ext HDD. I was about to get a Nucleus+ to use for HDMI audio to my Anthem MRX740, since it isn’t Roon Ready, still…
I figured I can build one for cheaper and have more performance for down the line so I have opted for a NUC build, thanks to all the advise read here.
Here is my set up
Ripjaws 16GB DDR4-3200 RAM 2 x 8 GB
Samsung 980 SSD 250GB M.2 NVMe
Samsung 870 QVO 4TB SSD 4-bit MLC V-NAND SATA III
Everything went smoothly with the set up, checked that Audio over HDMI was selected on the BIOS but not seeing anything when HDMI is plugged into my Anthem MRX 740. There are no options on Roon under Settings/Audio to enable any HDMI port. I have read that some NUCs do not support HDMI audio but it showed on Neweggs website that is supports up to 7.1 multichannel and then checked a couple other sites and it showed it had the capability.
I picked the NUC11TNHi5 so I can fit it into a Akasa Plato TN case, if there is another NUC that I should get I have some time to return the current NUC.
Any help is much appreciated.
yeah, that is what I noticed from other screen shots. I can not get a firm answer if this NUC has audio over HDMI from anyone, on chat with Intel right now. Lots of websites show it has it, even some Intel says it have up to 7.1 multi channel.
Unfortunately it does not have a 3.5mm
