Description of Issue


I have a 6 to 10 second delay when I play a webradio with Roon (1 is with Qobuz).

What could be the problem?

Thank you

Hello @Bernard_chabrand , is this for one particular station, or for all?

Some do take longer, especially if there are .m3u or similar playlist URLs with multiple streams inside.


I use roon at two differents places and the problem occurs only on one.
I had roon several years ago and this problem did not occurs too.
Could it be a route/network problem ?

Thank you


Hi @Bernard_chabrand,

Thank you for getting in touch with your question. It looks like you’re running your Roon Server on an underpowered NAS. The Synology DS218 underspec Intel Celeron J3355 dual-core CPU. We recommend an Intel i3 as a minimum on NAS boxes. You can find more information on Roon on NAS in this article from our Help Center.

Do you have another machine you can migrate your Roon Core/Server to as a test? You’re likely to have a better experience and alleviate this problem as well.


Everything works well on this NAS.
If it was a CPU problem, why would this delay problem occurs only with webradio streaming and not Qobuz ?
