I’ve installed the headless Roon Server (Core?) on my Mac Mini, Roon apps (remote controls?) on my Android and iPad, and stream from a networked HDD to my HiFiBerry connected to my Hegel H390 (while I wait for the Hegel to become Roon Ready). All good.
I wonder what software I would install on my Macbook Pro (the only device I have with an optical drive) if I wanted to use it as a Roon remote control and to rip CDs to my networked HDD. Is CD ripping something that Roon does? Thanks.
XLD is fine too if that is what you already use. To use the MacBook as a Roon remote, just download the MAC software package that includes everything. When you first use it there will be an option to use the MacBook as a core, or to select a core. You can select the Mac mini and you are good to go
