Haha, fair enough! I won’t worry about that for now then, as I have no need of Crestron control, etc.
Danny, if you had a moment to answer one more question it would help me -
Would a Nucleus (i3) be sufficient given my use case, which is currently:
- a small library, currently 152 local albums (I’m still ripping CDs and buying Hi-Red files but prob up to 2000 or so max. within the next few years) and currently 739 albums on Tidal but growing more rapidly
- only 3 or 4 zones in the house but rarely used simultaneously and then probably only max 2 at a time
- the possibility to run parametric EQ, or convolution for RC on at least one zone
no DSD upsampling (Meridian gear so it would be pointless/unnecessary)
- MQA first unfold
If the i3 is not enough, I could build e.g. a fanless i5 or i7 NUC to run Rock, as my finances can’t run to Nucleus+ right now.
