Hi everyone, first message here. Just subscribed to lifetime, I’m running Roon Core on iMac with Mojave pointing (watching) to HI-RES FOLDER + iTunes FOLDER on external Thunderbolt drive attached to iMac.
Added 2nd (watched) iTunes library over the network from my wife’s MacBookPro, and so far managed to filter the two libraries in Roon with bookmarks based on locations (my and my wife’s mac).
Everything is working over our 5 zones via 2 Airport Express and 1 Apple TV connected each to a audio system (i’m aware of the cap in definition) with a library of total of 200 GB (but fastly growing) and love it.
Wanting to get away from having the respective Macs turned on in order to access the libraries, I’m looking into setting up a boxNUC 7i3BNH (is i3 enough?) with internal storage (found a good deal on Amazon Warehouse but only 1 left).
Unless I am overlooking something obvious, I don’t know how to keep the respective and growing iTunes libraries working when needed (for iPhones sync etc) on each of the two computers and having the same media files automatically synced on the internal hard disk in the NUC to work in Roon (when new albums are added to iTunes lib.).
Any help/suggestion/user experience on this? TIA
