Core Machine (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)
Looking to spec a new Roon system for a client who has an existing Meridian Sooloos setup. I have questions about the integration and want to double check my engineering before I propose to client, since I am new to Roon as a product line and service.
Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)
We have a newly installed gigabit network system (Luxul Router, Switch). Installing a Synology NAS drive to store his ripped CD’s (currently stored on Sooloos STORE:ONE hard drives.
Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)
We are going to be purchasing a Nucleus which is specific for your system. Basic topology will be a Nucleus connected to a NAS drive (or existing hard drives) with music stored on it.
Description Of Issue
A couple questions about the system design to make sure I am including the correct products.
- Does the Nucleus connect directly to the already installed audio matrix? Do I need another device to stream the Roon Music?
- Can I use the current Sooloos STORE:ONE hard drives that store the music for his Sooloos system? I can use Synology NAS drives if required for the music storage.
- With the Nucleus in the mix, do I need a dedicated PC or server for the music service? It looks like the Nucleus services this purpose.
