are there any recommendations for my following setup?
Didn’t bought Roon at this moment, but this is still in pipeline.
I’m running a Synology NAS 2415+ (16GB RAM already installed) with 60TB* of lossless and DSD music files via 1GBit Router to my MacBook (WiFi) and Windows PC (LAN). MacBook and PC are just used for moving files to my NAS. On my Windows PC I’m running an Audio Interface (RME Fireface UCX). I want to use an iPad as User Interface Remote for searching and playing the music. Music should play via WIndows PC with the Fireface UCX. NAS, Macbook and Windows PC are connected to a router is a FRITZ!Box 7490 (limitation of Gigabit Ethernet) and I don’t want to change my router hardware with any else.
*12 x 10TB Seagate Ironwolf (via RAID1) = 60TB, so each 10TB RAID1 is a shared folder. In summary it’s six shared folders. Roon should be able to search and play from all six of them flawless.
Important for me is a super fast search engine.
And playing music without any cracklings. 95% of my music on my NAS is “standard” FLAC and 24-192 FLAC.
1.) Does it make sense to install Roon on my NAS (on SSD)?
1.1.) If so - what manufacturer/type of SSD is recommended?
1.2.) If not, what else hardware solution is recommended?
2.) I rip a lot Audio CDs and copy them to my NAS. Does Roon check the folders fast for new stuff or does it take a lot time because re-hashing the whole drives/database?
Thank you all a lot for your upcoming answers!
