QNAP TS-853A, 8 Gb RAM, 64 Tb Hard Disk, 2 Tb SSD
Ethernet 1 Gb
When checking that Roon was getting slower with my QNAP TS-853A, I decided to expand the RAM from 4 Gb to 8 Gb.
At first, the access speed increased considerably, but in a few days Roon went back slowly, taking almost a minute to open a disc once selected.
So I decided to move my entire library from the NAS to a 2 TB SSD, specifically a Crucial MX500, connected to the USB 3.0 socket of the QNAP.
The same thing happened when changing RAM: faster access and speed when searching and selecting songs and albums.
After two days, the speed again became noticeably reduced, until it almost became the same as before buying the RAM and the SSD.
My question is: what is happening? Do I need a superNAS or a supercomputer to access the songs and albums?
Why with the apps of Qobuz and TIDAL the access speed is infinitely superior to the one I get with Roon, having the library in my own home and server?
Personally, I think that Roon consumes too much processor power and its speed when accessing the disc on which the music is located is very slow.
It is true that I have 36,000 imported tracks, but I think that is not a reason for what is happening to me.
Can you help me?
