Nucleus storage

I’m planning to buy the nucleus without storage. I only stream. Does the specification of handling 10,000 albums/100,000 tracks mean I can stream this volume of music or will I still need to add on storage?

Hi Gerard,

2 different things. If you are streaming then you have no internal storage needs (which for a Nucleus means a second drive beyond the OS drive). So, no need to add storage.

However, Roon’s CPU and Memory database requirements is based on number of tracks in your library. It does not matter if the tracks are streaming or local, they both affect the library’s resource usage.

So, if you were planning on adding well over 100k tracks to your library from streaming sources, then you might want to consider the Nucleus + which has more memory and a faster CPU.

Thank you Daniel!
