I’m thinking about replacing my aging MacMini with a Roon Nucleus. I’m thinking about replacing my aging MacMini with a Roon Nucleus. It appears that most people find the SQ of Nucleus to be better than from the NUC i3 or i5, correct?
And is Roon any closer to an upgraded model as Danny Dulai has mentioned on another thread somewhere? I can perhaps postpone for a few months or even a year so long as my MacMini holds up which it should hopefully do.
Another question. If a copper case for the Nucleus is too expensive, do you think that my using 3M conductive copper on the inside (and perhaps outside also to the extent possible) of the casing would help with keeping out RFI/EMI, or anything else?
Are the differences between the Nucleus and the more expensive Nucleus+ only relating to the additional processing capabilities and not to SQ? I will have no use for the foreseeable future for DSP and my library is about 4000 CDs burned to a Firewire/MiniUSB drive.
What are the advantages of the Sonic Green Computer sonically or in terms of set-up simplicity or reliability?
Thanks for any insights.
