Perhaps some type of music file migration system to help users who purchase a Nucleus and want to migrate their music to the Nucleus’ internal drive.
For example, some users have an external drive and want a solution where they press a button and the music from the external usb drive is migrated to the Nucleus’ internal storage without having to go through copying it over the network.
My vote would also be to support Extensions and a Display via HDMI. But I would be reluctant to see much more, because I would like to see ROCK/Nucleus remain an appliance. There’s danger in adding too many bells and whistles into a microwave oven or a washing machine IMO.
As SMB can be problematic, no real-time scanning for example, would additional support for iSCSI be an option that resolves some (all?) of the possible problems of SMB without adding a whole bunch of new ones?
Looks like iSCSI is well supported on current OS’s and NAS devices.
This can be interpreted in a few different ways.
Are you saying the option to install and run on machinery other than supported NUCs will be removed or that you, like previously, won’t support other hardware?
I love the ROCK experience and want to keep it, but i don’t like the NUCs hardware. Not powerful enough, not supporting bigger storage space, difficult and expensive to convert into fanless etc.
With UEFI-support the ROCK experience would be open to a lot more choices in hardware though.
SQ improvements - there are options on the market that still sound better than Roon in some cases (e.g., Euphony, AudioLinux, dCS Mosaic). I don’t know what they are doing but I’ve done some A:B testing and the differences are not hard to hear.
Extensions - I’m not sure what is meant but I would love to have an API or something that makes it easy to tie Roon into a home automation platform so I can control lights, shades, and music with a button push
