Roon core on Innous zen mk3

Have anybode tried to run roon core on innous ZEN MK3?
Can you reccomend this?

Check out the review by Darko:

I’ve not been able to get the core running properly on a Zenith II in 6 months. Impossibly slow to transfer the roon backup and library of files over to it via the network. About to give up.

I have used the Zenith MK II first as squeezeplayer - fine. Then as ROON Core with ROON 1.5 with less endpoints. It was ok. With 1.6 and more endpoints, TIDAL and Qobuz it was slow and buggy. I got problems with track forward and backward. I had to restart ROON very often. I cancelled the INNUOS-ROON experiment now.

I am pleased I visited this thread today as I am considering the Innuos product. May favour the Nucleus now. Sorry to hear of your issues midi

Don´t misunderstand me - the Innuos is a great product with are really good SQ, but I think their focus is not ROON, they prefer squeezelite (now they have a beta - use squeezelite in Roon Core). So if your focus is Roon…see the video at - I agree with them. But If you like squeezelite and you have only one endpoint connected via USB the Innuos is a very good choice.

Thank you all for your comments:)

My intention was to manage with ‘everything’ in one box, but it looks like innous isnt ready for roon core yet.

Innuos zen mk3 as server, nucleus core linked to my dac amp by usb, epic.
I can rip, store, core runs like a dream, music reproduction is great.
All i need is an Auralic vega G1 DAC now.

I’m looking for a roon core and got really excited when I saw these, but they are still running Intel Pentium N4200 processors with 4gb memory. So this is not an future proof option. Shame.
