QNAP TS-453Be experience

Good evening. I bougt a QNAP TS-453B to expand my nas Library.
I equipped the NAS with WD Red drives and with 2x 500GB SSD using an optional QNAP PCe card (QNAP QM2-2S-220A) and the memory is expanded to 8GB.
With little hope I installed Roon because an i7 is suggested.
Surprise: the system is fast and very responsive and can transdecode the DSD files to PCM with no issues at all wit an elaboration speed above between 5 and 7%.
CPU load between 14 to 26%. I have seen a peak to 62% due to other activities. Used ram: 30%.

Here’s a snapshot of the system (Roon+Qnap)
