Being a long time JRiver MC user, I’m not yet sure I’ll move to Roon. But as they are extremely reluctant to integrating streaming services like Tidal and quobuz, I’m seriously looking for an alternative.
As far as I can tell, ROCK is only supported on Intel NUCs. But how about AMD? Before my final decision, I first want to try Roon in a VMware Workstation VM. After that I want to run the server, preferably ROCK, on a relatively light weight stand alone server with it’s own storage to accommodate my local music collection. I read good things about the ZBOX CA621 nano (https://www.zotac.com/us/product/mini_pcs/zbox-ca621-nano-barebone), a small, fanless, AMD Ryzen 3 3200 equipped box, with sufficient memory and local storage options. Will that fly smoothly with ROCK? Or should I go for Roon Server with my own choice of Linux flavour, but also more hassle.
