As a non IT savvy person I managed - using Roon guidance to set up my own ROCK 4 years ago and have to say that I am very pleased with it
For some reason though that I don’t understand I avoid rebooting it because it’s very hit and miss when restarting. Often I have to reboot 5 or 6 times before it works
However, my question here is there any difference in music quality between a home built ROCK and a Nucleus
Might be worth investigating the boot issue (or at least making sure you have a great backup).
Just in case it’s something that is going to fail in a more serious way.
As you know because you did it before - buying a new boot SSD and reinstalling and the restoring a backup isn’t hard.
I do back up - actually 3 times every night - which may be a little over the top I know
Just wish I could understand why the rebooting is an issue - it’s been the same since (as you say) I bought and reinstalled the new SSD
Great you have it covered!
My only thought is to try reseating the boot SSD (inserting and removing a few times in case the connectors are a little oxidised)
