The standard Hybrid HDD/SSD is a 2.5 inch 'laptop' style really quite quiet in operation (similar to C10/C15).

There is a small cooling fan, but most of the time this is off (or at least I can't here it). It tends to come on when Roon initially starts up and loads the database into memory and also when Roon is performing audio analysis (in fast mode).

In summary I'd view it (noise wise) more like a laptop than an PC.

It would be better if there was a factory option for an SSD and say 16GB of RAM, but these can be sourced from the likes of Crucial etc. if required.

Trust this help,
Carl

PS Windows 10 runs just fine.

Hi Carl

Thanks for the update. I used a 24" touchscreen from Dell which was fantastic. Whereabouts have you located the PC? Has there been any resistance! smile

Cheers
Tom

I would hold fire until the Roon iPad app is released before committing to a touchscreen monitor or all in one PC, not long to wait now...

If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day. But if you teach a man to fish he will buy an ugly hat. And if you talk about fish to a starving man then you are a consultant.

If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then quit. No use being a fool about it.

....well thanks to Russ, Nick and Carl that didn't take me long!


I do think my (Full Size) iPad looks a bit small now, looking forward to the iPad Pro next Wednesday :-)











Really really pleased with it, simply stunning.

Now off for an evening of music rediscovery with a favourite bottle of posh red.

Looks fantastic! On the iPad app go to settings then the general tab then select yes to "allow more covers and photos" it won't be as good as the PC but you will get more albums on the screen.

Cheers

Looking good. I might be tempted to show fewer covers on the big screen. There is a setting for that.

Try the "now playing" screen too. That should look pretty cool too.

Yip, fewer covers on the big screen and more covers on the iPad... smashing smile

One thing missing, I didn't realise how much I listened to the radio frown Without Sooloos I've not figured a way to get Radio 2 (yes sorry) through my main M system on a Sunday morning...
