Now that I have amassed a few C10/C15 units, seven total (6) C10 one of which is black and (1) C15. I am embarking on a project to reuse the enclosures as controls for Roon.

I have on order a 17” capacitive touch monitor to replace the resistive touch unit. Will swap out the Windows CPU with a Mac Mini running touchscreen software. All of the items should fit within the enclosure without issue.

If anyone foresee a potential obstacle in this venture, I would be interested.

Does ROCK run touchscreen? Wondering if a NUC might be an option over the Mac Mini.


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.

No, ROCK runs Roon Server which is headless (ie there is no GUI).

It could be a NUC but it would have to run Windows so the full Roon application can be run.

Have you opened up a Control:10/15 yet? There isn't much room in there. It's been a long time since I was inside mine, but the mainboard is attached to the back of the screen. How do you plan on mounting a Mac Mini, are you just going to use the board? Still may be a tight fit.

What touch monitor did you order? Does it work with Mac? Will you need a separate power supply from the computer?

A NUC might be a better option as mentioned. They're physically smaller than a Mac Mini so may be easier to fit inside. They can be ordered with Windows installed so running Roon client shouldn't be an issue. I'm sure the touchscreen would have Windows drivers.

The optical drive is obviously in the bottom separately, not sure if you want to use that portion?

Are you using this as an audio endpoint or just for control?

I am more leaning towards using the 12.9 1st gen iPad Pro. The software that came with the touch screen was not as responsive as I would have liked compared to the iPad. Another advantage with the iPad is that if a call comes in while listening to music I can easily answer via FaceTime.
