Does anybody have any thoughts about how to set up Roon to use on the road, but using only one license?
My current set up involves the following:
Travel Kit is a 2012 Macbook Air i7 with 16gb RAM and 1tb SSD with a 350gb music folder. I am running Roon as the Core on this unit, with two profiles, one looking at the laptop SSD and the other looking at a Synolgy 412+ NAS that has a music folder synced to the laptop.
Home set up is a NUC-1 fanless set up USB into a Electrocompaniet Integraded Amp or Oppo HA-1 headphone amp. NUC-1 is linked to NAS. Roon is installed on the NUC-1 as Remote.
To use at home, I turn on laptop and roon and choose the Network profile and connect via ethernet to home network. I run the NUC-1 as remote, which drives either of the amps.
The set up works and the sound is good, but it is a pain to have to remember to start up and connect the laptop each time.
Does anyone have a better idea? I am sure that there are different ways to skin this cat…
