The latest version of Roon prior to the beta release installs and works flawlessly on my DS218+ running ‘DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 2’ (the latest of today).
How I did it - a how to:
- Download the latest installer for Synology (x64) here: https://roononnas.org/builds/Synology/RoonServer_Synology_x86_64_2018-03-07.spk
(try this one first before the Beta release).
Note: Be sure to download the file with your pc or mac and not on the NAS itself.
Login to the NAS from your web browser on your pc/mac on an account with ADMIN privileges.
Open the ‘Package Center’.
In the upper right corner the window of the ‘Package Center’ choose ‘Manual Install’ and ‘Browse’ to the file you downloaded above and choose it. Follow the instructions.
If the installation still fails please go the ‘Control Panel’ on the NAS and open ‘Info Center’ and verify that you indeed have an Intel CPU = ‘INTEL Celeron J3355’.
Let us know how things turns out.
The Roon Server runs without a glitch on my DS218+ with only 2GB of memory.
I use DSP Convolution for room correction (full bandwidth 20-20.000Hz) and also DSP Sample Rate Conversion.
The DS218+ handles the Roon DSP without a glitch of any kind.
CPU utilisation for the Roon Server is <20% and memory utilisation is <750MB when handling a 24 bit 384kHz DXD file. I’m impressed.
