A search of the forum using the above subject as the search term has returned nothing.

I have a couple of TwinStores and would like to use them for Roon. I believe TwinStores are essentially just a tailored Windows computer with storage and so it should be possible (and necessary now that Meridian have abandoned Sooloos) to modify the software that is automatically loaded on start-up with appropriate replacement software that can speak Roon. It might be a bit fiddly and require non-standard expertise, but has anyone done this?

By the way, I am not concerned about the longevity of my TwinStores, even though they use a specially tailored motherboard, because they can be repaired if one is prepared to engage in component level diagnosis and replacement (though hot air work tools might be needed).

Hi

Give me a call, it is possible to use the TwinStore.

@Russ

Is your solution different to just using it as a regular SMB drive either with/without the Sooloos structure?

Hi Ian

No, that is exactly my solution.
