I am looking to purchase NUC. Recommended/approved configurations on Roon site refer to gen 10 systems. They are still available, but for the same money (or close enough) I can get the latest gen 11 system, example NUC11PAKI5. Just launched in Australia.
Has anyone tried that hardware yet? If not, would there be a potential compatibility issue? I am not sure how deep ROCK OS ties into the BIOS and onboard hardware…
My hardware is NUC11TNKV5, Kingston 16GB RAM and Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe 2TB.
I’m ruuning RoonServer app on Windows 10.
I’d like to run Roon ROCK.
So, if you have any solution, please share.
I’m a computer engineer and I can do anything on Windows platform but when it comes to Linux I’m a rookie. I’d like to give it a try (though as I’m not very familiar with Linux.) If you can implement the driver to the Roon Rock image. Or give me the instructions, what do. No problem.
As a new member to Roon, I got a bit over my ski’s and purchased an NUC 11 PAHi7, only to find out that it wasn’t supported. I would love to hear when a fix is available. In the mean time I’m running Roon Core on a desk top. My only issue is the fan noise.
Hi Rad, there is nothing stopping you running Linux or Windows on that device.
The only thing not supported is Rock, and for many new users that is the easiest way to run Roon as simple headless and rarely need to touch system.
Hopefully Roon with have Rock 2 out in the near future, but they never give a date, only when it is ready.
Thank you for the input. I was trying to avoid using Windows if possible. I’m in no hurry so will wait for a while to see if Danny can get an updated Roon OS. Otherwise I will take our advice and setup Win OS.
