ROCK Hardware Primer

It will work (it’s on Roon’s list of supported hardware), and it will support a modicum of DSP. Whether it will be sufficient to meet your DSP requirements, I have no way of telling.

FWIW, I’m thinking of going the same route. I currently have a 6th gen i3 - which is sufficient for my modest (1,000+) albums, and DSP with FLAC files. However, it struggles with DSP for DSD64 files. While I could get a 7i7 NUC, I thought that if I went for a 7i5, then I could always transfer the motherboard into an Asaka Newton S7 fanless case if the noise got on my nerves…
