Roon core (Mac Mini) crashes couple times a day

Hello to you all,
Roon Core on my Mac Mini crashes a couple times day.
I’ve tried some tips from this community. Nothing helps so far.
I’ve deleted the transport file and deleted and intstalled the application for an second time.
At last I deleted the Database file and replaced for a new one.
The system i use is:
Mac Mini (Roon Core) High Sierra Intel Core i7
1 TB HD with a music file
The Nativ Stream system ( Android based)
4 TB HD wij a lot of High Res files
DAC: Dragonfly Red

I’ve got tons of crash reports on my Mac if you’re interested?
A little part of the last report:

I hope you can give me a solution. Because els I’ve t find another application for my files.

Hello @Ruud_Elde,

Would you mind to provide full OSX crash report via dropbox or any other cloud drive?


Have you consider running headless? I have an old mac mini that could not run roon Core very well but is stunning running roon server. Course you’ll need a tablet.

Hi there,
Any solution yet about the described problem?
The system still crashes a couple times a day.
