Hello to All,
I consider purchasing NAS. It is meant to replace my current Mac Pro 2013 as photo storage/work.
However I also have 4TB of music that I like to play on my Marantz (SR 6006).
My current setup is Roon on Mac Pro, both Mac and Marantz connected to network switch (1Gb). Files are flac, aiff, some mp3. It’s usually pretty smooth.
I control music from my computer (via Roon app) and from my phone (Room ios app).
When I first installed Roon on my Mac, it was able to “see” Marantz immediately and playback worked right away.
So the questions are:
If I install Roon and all the music files on Qnap would the Roon ‘see’ networked Marantz and allow simple playback? I think the answer is yes but would like to make sure before I spend $$$ on NAS just to find out I would be better of with a simple external storage solution.
As a side note: I love the quality of sound from my Marantz and although it’s not without its faults I do not wish to replace it with a new receiver.
Side note #2: I do not wish to control playback from Marantz. The app is outdated and horrible for browsing etc. So controlling it from Roon is a must.
Thanks a lot for all the help!
