I have been using Roon for a while and my setup is as follows:
Roon Core running on QNAP TS-469L NAS. Total stored tracks is about 35,000
Network player: LUMIN A1
The QNAP is an older model with only spinning hard drives, however it works fine as a music storage device. The NAS is very slow when performing Roon actions and it hangs up sometimes. Memory on NAS cannot be expanded above the current 2GB. Network is all hard wired. I was thinking of buying the Nucleus device so the Roon core would run on that instead of the NAS. My questions are:
- does the Nucleus have built in storage for the Roon database or do I have to add an SSD?
- since I am storing all my music on the NAS, is he Nucleus 10,000 album limitation relevant in my situation? Or is that limitation only if storing music on the Nucleus internal hard drives?
- Can the standard Nucleus be upgraded to the “plus” model?
