I think I will be going down the home brewed NUC/Rock route but I am a bit of a techophobe and will also give thought to saving my pennies and plumping for Nucleus. I hope this question does not give rise to offence but if Roon, for whatever reason, closes down or a new kid on the block comes up with a whizz-bang player, will it be possible to repurpose the hardware?
Yes of course the HW is standard it is the os that is customised.
August, is it? @Danny ?
I want one, in spite of having a NUC and a SonicOrbiter.
The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good.
yah, possibly earlier, but august is safe
Why would anyone pay $1200 for the Nucleus when a Mac Mini with i5, 256GB flash (four times more!), 8GB memory (twice) costs $900? and it’s a full fledged computer made by Apple
Horses for courses I guess.
Mac mini is not fanless.
Nucleus runs ROCK a customised os.
You don’t need a full Apple or Windows system to run Roon now.
Nucleus is a turnkey solution and that has huge appeal to non technical buyers.
And yet if you don’t want Nucleus you can just run Roon on a Mac, Windows, Linux pc or indeed on a Qnap, pretty impressive choice I would say.
