Using Roon in Alternate Locations

I have two homes, dividing my time equally between the two. Currently, I have Roon set up on a Sonictransporter I5 at location A. When I go to location B, I’d like to be able to set up Roon there. How do I go about doing this? I’m guessing that I could just take the I5 to Location B and set it up there, using a Sonore MicroRendu as the renderer. Are there other options? Thanks,

Yes, this will work, if that means also taking your music files…

None simpler than taking your ST with you,

I loaded my music files onto the internal hard drive, so I’m guessing this will work. However, if I wanted to install the Roon Server on another device (laptop), I assume I could take it with me to location B and just disable the I5, then enable the laptop to be active once I get there. Will this also work? Thanks,

Yes, that will work. And you could copy your local music files on the laptop.

Thanks very much.

A laptop can make a very compelling portable Roon Server.

FWIW, my core is a NUC running ROCK with my library on an internal SSD. Recently I visited a friend that I wanted to demo it to, so I brought the NUC to his house, made a wired connection to his router (easier than fussing with wifi passwords) and it all just worked instantly.
