I know there are recommendations available for chosing hardware, but there are quite few performance reports from real world examples. Are there more people than me who wants to know what they can expect from, say, a Gen 6 i5 NUC running ROCK compared to an older PC with an Intel Core i5 3470?
If so i suggest that we create a matrix within a limited set of boundaries to keep it simple and reasonably comparable and understandable. The only way i know of getting performance figures out of roon is by using the DSP and looking at the “processing speed”.
And then we need to keep it simple and basic so i suggest two values based only on upsampling RedBook material into one stream for this test. Only one mandatory value here so most people can add. (If your DAC doesn’t do DSD, you are welcome to contribute the 24/192 upsampling performance figure.)
If you have an energy meter those values are highly appreciated too, one value when idling and the other two when disks are spinning and your sending an upsampled stream to an endppoint.
I started a public spreadsheet on Google Docs, available here
And please do add if you have the opportunity!
