Hello Roonsters. Still kinda new here, and now definitely having to get an NAS (my non-NAS Drobo has run out of space!) I could really use some advise because I’m getting overwhelmed with all the apparent decisions. I have read the Roon recommended “minimum” QNAP requirements.
I will be using the QNAP mainly for Roon and storage of 4K Remux files (huge size). The QNAP will NOT be connected directly to my TV or projector, but connected to a home network with Cat 6 cable. I will likely go for a 6 or 8 bay model because of the size/number of my video files. I will be feeding Roon to my Oppo UDP-203 and my Allo Digi One as endpoints. My 4K files will be fed to my Oppo UDP-203 and Apple TV/Infuse. I have an all Mac household.
The Roon website recommends the TS-x73 as a minimum.
The QNAP website (Roon section) recommends TS-x73, TVS-x82, and TS-x77 (presumably increasing CPU power?).
All the photos on the Roon section of the QNAP website showcase a drive which is not one of the above 3 recommended drives, but appears to be a TS-932X/832X, TS-963X, or TVS-951X. Why are they showing this picture and it is not one of their recommended drives? Should I be going for one of these units?
Any recommendations on which QNAP to get for my particular situation?
