I’m new to Roon and have had great results installing ROCK on my repurposed (and now fanless) NUC8i7BEH.
It’s got me thinking of getting a couple of family members up-and-running with a cheap NUC off eBay, stick ROCK on it and hide a Raspberry Pi behind their posh looking HiFi kit for streaming.
But I do like a bargain. If I didn’t already have a spare machine ready to go I definitely would have done some testing on some low-end devices.
So the question is this - who has the best ‘shed’? The best low-end, bargain basement ROCK? Who’s salvaged an old Optiplex from a skip and is using it to serve them multi-room streaming? Who’s repurposed Grandma’s old cream desktop for some DSD goodness? Who’s that guy who’s answer to every computer question is ‘Old ThinkPad’ (guilty).
Let the shed posting commence!
