A lot depends on your library size, but I would check your PC spec against Roon’s minimum requirement,

As far as I see the Atom is a 1 ghz clock and is probably underpowered for Roon , but I am no expert on CPU’s

Hi @hobeom_park,

As Mike suggested above, your Core machine doesn’t quite meet our requirements. How many tracks total are in your library?

Do you have any machine that meets our requirements that you could try temporarily?

Hi @hobeom_park
It may not that relevant for this support request, but Audio Device includes Roon Ready devices, basically anything the Roon is using (or attempting to use) as a audio zone. Roon ask this to get a full picture of your setup which aid them to diagnose the issue.

Thanks for your help.

All other systems run without problems.
Yes, it has to do with system performance.
I am wondering if there is a parameter increment timeout parameter, etc.

Hello @hobeom_park,

Thanks for confirming other systems work without issue.

Since the Core you wish to use does not meet our minimum requirements, we suggest using another Roon Core. You will very likely run into performance issues on an Atom CPU as you’ve seen.

Also, since you are using Ubuntu as a Roon Core, I would check to make sure it isn’t by any chance related to this issue:
