Running a Mac mini as a dedicated server.
Mac Mini Late 2014, i7 2.8Ghz Dual Core CPU, 16Gb RAM, 256Gb SSD
Hard-wired Gigabit LAN using Ubiquiti switch.
Sonore Ultra Rendu connected to USB of Marantz NA-11S1 DAC.
65,000 tracks, of which 70% are via Qobuz streaming.
I have had on-going issues with Roon being very slow to add new albums to the library (can take up to a minute or more) as well as the interface generally being slow to search for albums, change screens, etc.
I have this issue on all of my Roon clients, including a new MacBook Air M1, iPad Pro, iPhone etc. It seems that my hardware specifications should be more than sufficient for my library, so I’m not sure what the issue is.
I do use upscaling to DSD128, which my Marantz supports natively, but turning the DSP off doesn’t seem to help the UI speed issue.
