... just wondered what the largest screen size anyone is using for Roon, a there seems to be some pretty big touch PC type all in ones or monitors available...

I just wondered what people thought in terms of responsiveness (as I'm considering selling the C15 and making the leap)...

I love my C15 so a replacement would be useful for the living room that I can touch, and yes I know an iPad or similar is coming along. I just think a 23inch (or even 27 inch) Roon would seem pretty cool.

Thoughts?

I have a Lenovo A740 27" (2560 * 1440) i7 CPU 'all in one' touch PC running Window 10 and Roon looks and run great on it.

Also running an iPad Air 2 which is also very slick.

Swapping out the standard HDD with a SSD would be the icing on the cake.

Regards,
Carl

How funny Carl, that's exactly the one I was looking at.

That or the "Horizon 2" or the HP Envy Recline 27...

Do you use the A740 as your Roon Server (Core) and then just access it via the iPad etc? If so, I assume it has the processing power to do all OK? I'm thinking of that with my new QNAP and sell on the C15...

Thanks for your help Carl

Chris

Interesting playlist, very Bjork heavy. What are the two versions of "Danny the Dog"?

Hi, it has more than enough power to run the full Roon app and to use as a general purpose PC as well.

I've been working away so I've not had time to experiment with the Roon Server. However, my intention is to run RoonServer on it (so it is always on) and the Roon App in remote mode.

My C15 is still setup but is getting less and use these days.
Now that Roon is stabilising I think it time with me is now limited.

Perfect, my objective too.

And then I guess when Roon Server comes available for QNAP to put on my QNAP then I could shift the processing part to the QNAP (then connected to the ID41 in my 861 as output) and the screen just becomes GUI processing and UX...

Would that work?

Yep, should do.

I would certainly keep the processing away from the listening room unless you have a silent NUC.

It will be interesting to see how the rumoured iPad Pro stacks up with Roon when it's launched.

Not huge but high quality.


Sooloos, Roon, G series (with LPS upgrade), 800 series (with LPS upgrade), HD621, AC200, Prime and PS, DSPs old and new.

Purdeys, Moke, Leica, 'Blad. Only the best.

I'm guessing you could also screen mirror it with a huge TV too!

The Roon iOS app doesn't run as Roon core. It is specifically a remote app.

I use iPad Mini3 and core on a NUC. Performance is very impressive.

Carl -

That is a nice looking machine - what is the noise like from it?

Cheers
Tom
