Over the past few months I have enjoyed the relative pleasure of running my Roon Server on my file server (a rack mounted Xeon processor which is also my compute/file server). Recently I migrated to Ubuntu as a VM for Roon Server, but have decided to go the NUC route and install ROCK.

I am very impressed Roon Labs released ROCK for free. I will update this thread when I have finished migrating to ROCK and have a few days of listening "under my belt".

I just made the move myself. Once it's up and running, you'll love it. I didn't have to do any migration since I was still using Sooloos.

Are you putting your library on the NUC?

Bill, I am planning on keeping my music library on my NAS, where my movie library also stays, and mounting it via SMB.

There seemed to be an improvement in the audio when I went from VM Debian jessie to VM Ubuntu. I'm hoping for an even more audible improvement by moving to ROCK. Also tempted to do some room correction in ROCK/Roon soon by following ander's guide.
