Roon redux


#61

Why not get a new NAS that can run the Roon core, keep you existing NAS as a backup device and save yourself a lot of money?


#62

I am crap with computers but run roon on mine with little problem. Having said that, Mark did make a little tweak to the output to mine the other week but more fine tuning than anything. If I can manage it you can, because I am totally hopeless!


#63

Just get a decent Windows PC; I use one like this: https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/HP-EliteOne-800-G1-Core-i5-3-1GHz-16GB-750GB-120GB-SSD-Windows-10-23-AIO-PC/372410780913?_mwBanner=1&ul_noapp=true

Big 23" touch screen, SSD for speed and an HD for storage, would run Roon easily.


#64

Good advice but my brain hurts thinking about trying to get Roon to work again. I need to try the dac in the CD player.


#65

Presumably it does have a digital input?


#66

Yes, has USB etc


#67

We you can either spend a grand+ on a turnkey solution, or a couple of hundred quid on a PC like that. I’m sure you could find a local PC guru who would come and spend a couple of hours setting up for a hundred quid.


#68

Yep, would come and set up for coffee and cake :grin:


#69

A new coffee machine could be the way to go :smile:

What happened to nonsensical itch scratching HiFi purchases :smile:


#70

Haha, yes. Spend a few hundred on an Intel NUC and lob the rest at an outrageous coffee machine. :grin:


#71

Not personally, but a dealer near me got the more expensive one in to try and was not overly impressed.


#72

How did I miss @thebiglebowski’s flounce on the Roon forums?

“Goodbye Roon” :joy:


#73

Lack of interest ?


#74

No issue with Roon just fed up with it adding JayZ shite from Tidal


#75

Fucking hell, any old dunce can get Roon to work :wink:


#76

Except it didn’t, did it?

It’s been added through you (or somebody with your login) favouriting something in Tidal.


#77

fucking hell even Phil is better at trolling than that attempt.


#78

Sorry Einstein, you’ve obviously got it all in hand.


#79

I really hated all the Jay-Z shit in Tidal, it was worth moving to Qobuz just for that alone!


#80

What is Roon then. Like Spotify?
