I’m just a little confused. I see terms like bridge, server and core, so I’m not sure what to expect.
I am starting from having NO roon at all in the house. I’ve been using my Mytek DAC very successfully with this hardware using Logitech Media Server. Its a Pi 4 with 4 Gigs of RAM and lots of free disks.
I’ve installed the roon-bridge for Arm8, and that runs and the check.sh script also says I have all the dependencies. I can’t get an Android app to connect though.
The app says it’s looking for “Roon Core” and spins and spins.
Do I have everything I need at this point or am I missing some piece of Roon hardware I don’t have?
I believe that the Roon team has commented on this before, but given the processing requirements, I doubt that the port will ever be made. Most people who want the simplest DIY core setup buy a NUC and install Roon’s OS on it (ROCK), if they don’t have a suitable “PC” already available to use.
Sorry, but no. It still doesn’t come close to meeting the requirements for a Roon Core. (Especially considering the CPU demands for some of the DSP Engine modes.) For the foreseeable future (meaning at least a couple years), Roon Core will be x64 only.
