Newbie here. I want to run Roon. I am struggling with how to connect all my gear and how the music stream flows.
I just acquired a second hand Roon Nucleus with a 4tb Internal SSD about half full of music in WAV format and though I’ve read quite a bit of documentation I’m still confused about whether I’ve got my music components connected properly and what are the steps I need to take to get up and running with my music,
I have a dual boot Win7 Win 10 Core i7.
Roon Nucleus Corei3
My stereo system is attached by way of USB cable > Berkeley Alpha USB > Audio Alchemy DDP-2 Digital Music Player Roon Endpoint > Audio Alchemy DDP-1 DAC
I have an iPad.
I have a second stereo system in my living room, but I’ll worry about that later.
Do I need to install the Core on my computer? Or is that already in the Roon Nucleus? If so, what do I need to install into the computer?
Assuming I have everything in place correctly, how do I tell Roon to convert my music file to Roon format and proceed to make music flow.
