Will my existing hardware work for a Roon trial?

I’m currently a Sooloos user but my desktop is running an i3 with 4 GB of ram and I’m using an iPad2 for control. My music is on a Meridian MC200. I’m guessing a Roon trial won’t work for me, correct?

Hi Ken,

The desktop may run Roon, depending on your graphics card and library size, but it is unlikely to be a satisfactory experience. An i5 from Ivy Bridge up is recommended. It would be more likely to run Roon Server (which does not have the gui), but then you would need another control point.

An iOS control must have OpenGL ES 3.0 support: (iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 2, Mini 3, Mini 4 and Pro), so the iPad 2 would not work.

Thanks, I thought as much.

@KenS: The i3 should be ok if you have an SSD. The i5 would be better, but the SSD actually matters more.

The iPad 2 is as @andybob says – not going to work.
