I have read the basics about the hardware requirements for running the ROON Core, particularly including this. It made sense.
A key point was that the size of the library determines (more or less) how much resources are needed. How much music do you have? Managing 20,000 albums is way more demanding than managing 2,000
My question is, does a collection with 20,000 albums from TIDAL need the same resources as the same number of albums that were ripped? I am thinking that it does because in both cases it is metadata that is being managed. Or perhaps TIDAL’s data is so tidy it is less impactful? Or there is some other factor impacting this about which I am clueless?
Thanks for clearing that up. It makes a huge difference for me. I have only a couple of hundred CDs at most, but I also have five and a half feet of LPs and I will find and add many of them via TIDAL, and all of that will be overwhelmed by filling vast holes in my collection via TIDAL with music and performances new to me.
