I’ve been using the full version of Roon on my Windows 10 i5 laptop that acts as the Roon core. I have a lower powered Windows 10 i3 laptop with Roon bridge acting as my output to my Mytek Brooklyn DAC+. I like to be able to view the now playing info on the output laptop, so with Roon Bridge, I also need to have my internet browser open to display the now playing info through the Roon “Display” feature.
Would I be better off going to the full version of Roon on my output laptop so that I don’t need to use the internet browser to display the now playing info?
Also, would there be any advantage to going with Roon server on my core laptop instead of the full version? I rarely use the user interface on the core since I use an iPad as a remote to control everything.
My goal here is to have the most efficient and easy to use setup using the i5 laptop as my core and using the i3 laptop as my output, but with the ability to display the now playing info on the output laptops screen.
Any Input on other options that I haven’t thought of would also be appreciated. Thanks!
