I have been thinking about replacing my Mac mini running Core with a NUC and ROCK. I too use Roon Core to connect to other Roon Endpoints on my network, so was wondering if there are any real advantages to migrating from my current setup to a NUC/ROCK solution. My Mac mini is relatively new with a 2.6GHz i5 and 8GB of 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM and 260GB of flash storage for the OS. I use my 16TB Synology 916+ NAS for storage.

I guess the only advantages would be found in any performance/reliability improvements in ROCK vs. Core. My hi-res library is just over 1TB...and I have yet to see any performance issue with the iMac running Core (the mini is headless..and is dedicated to Roon).
