Which of these 2 QNAPs?

I wonder if someone here knows what Qnap NAS of these two!
Will work not only as a NAS, but also put the core on?
Meridian Sooloos Use one of these two, but they only refer to Qnap TS-251 :smile: nothing else!
Of course does there exist two different versions with the same name…

Qnap TS-251+ 2-bay NAS
2-bay NAS, Quad Core 2.0GHz, 8GB, SATA 6Gb/s, 2 Giga LAN, 2 xUSB3.0, 2xUSB2.0

Qnap TS-251A-4G 2-bay NAS
Tower, 2.5"/3.5" SATA 6Gbps, 3GBps, Intel Celeron Dual Core 1.6GHz, 4GB DDR3L

Depending on the size of your library you could do very well with one of these as your Roon Server. If you decide to go native i would select the TS-251+ for its quad core cpu and 8Gb of RAM, even though it is a Celeron.
Add a SSD over USB 3.0 for the Roon database, or dedicate one of the internal bays for a 2.5" SSD
