My Cambridge Audio CXNv2 has become roon ready thanks to the latest firmware update, so I’ve signed up for the 14 day trial.
I’ve done some reading and the setup of my core looks borderline so I wondered if anyone with similar equipment has had a good or bad experience. Other suggestions or recommendations are welcome.
CPU: Intel Celeron 2.41GHz dual-core processor (burst up to 2.58GHz)

5000 tracks on NAS
Playing around last night it seemed okay with no major issues. The cataloguing process seemed quite slow though but that’s acceptable while setting up. I enabled volume normalisation (auto) and this seemed to take a while to kick in for each song.
My NAS can’t take an SSD upgrade but I could get a USB3.1 portable SSD and plug it into the USB 3 port for the database. Would this help if I experience any slowness?
Thanks in advance for any help.
