I have a friend with a very large library of LPs (yes I appreciate the differece) and CDs whom I’m trying to persuade to shift to ROON.
Problem is that he is a Luddite technophobe who has not ventured outside his (PC, not MAC) notebook or new large new TV and is even more ignorant about PCs and associated gear than me. So it seems the only way to persuade him is to have a suitable Notebook he can use as before but can also run ROON.
I’ve done some initial searches here and elsewhere but have not come up with an answer that hopefully someone can give me here. What specs would be required for a notebook to run ROON with music files an external 5TB HDD connected by USB3?
Would Windows 7 on a 250GB SSD C drive be OK?
Would an i3 or i7 processor be OK?
How much RAM?
Or is this whole concept of a Notebook too hard and I should persuade him to go for a complely different setup? If so suggestions?
If I know the answers to this I can search for a suitable used notebook or system to set up for him. He is a bit of a scrooge so suggestions for a reasonably priced bridge to feed a DAC would be appreciated. It will have to operate by wireless link as he is unwilling to install cabling.
