  1. For me, knowing that Qobuz will be a legitimate alternative steaming option inside of roon lets me sleep a little easier at night. Especially since signing up for the lifetime licence.
  2. There is an Intel nuc in the classifieds right now that will make life easy for you. Personally I think the nucleus is the biggest Rip off in hifi right now. It is essentially an Intel nuc in a fancy box. The seller has even offered in the add to setup whatever software you like. That said, it's as easy as downloading Roon rock to a USB stick and following the very clear instructions on the Roon website. As for performance... I have had Roon core running on all kinds of hardware, I haven't yet found a difference in sound quality. When it comes to the endpoints howeve
  3. Latest Roon update broke the docker container's access to local storage, oh well. Since I can't be arsed mucking about with the server side anymore I just decided to reinstall it alongside TrueNas Scale ?. Which did involve adding the debian repository in order to install ffmepg. Restored from backup and now all good. It also broke my 64bit install in wine on my manjaro laptop, Since it's arch I'm used to updates breaking things. Updated on the HTPC all fine tho, also running manjaro with 64bit Roon in wine. Good reminder to have frequent backups everyone ?
  4. All upgraded here semi seamlessly. I run Roon server in a docker image on a Linux server. Various iOS devices and a few android phones and tablets as well. No issues with any of them. Only minor issue was with upgrading Roon on my laptop that runs manjaro, with Roon running on wine. I just had to edit the launcher files to line up with the updated Roon version number.
  5. I do know the bush fires delayed a number of Trains leaving and arriving into Perth. So that won't be helpful.
  6. You can set a delay in Roon if you have a device that's a little lazy. I had to do it with a bluesound powernode2 that was around 70 ms slower than my other equipment.
  7. Usually the you yang's. Although wombat is if I feel like a bit more xc. Then there's Harcourt. I did lake mountain last weekend and yeh... Good luck on a hard tail there. There was a time I just had a quick play at quarry park in Footscray and there was a crazy roadie there, on his road bike absolutely sending it. Was incredible seeing just how skillful he was. Ultimately it proves what you can get away with comes down to the skills of the rider. You only need to watch Ashton Martyn's road bike party on you tube to see what can be done on a road bike.
  8. I see the OP is from WA, it just so happens I also started off getting into MTB over in that neck of the woods. I started off with a very basic dual suspension MBT with the thought that if it was indeed a little harder to peddle, I'd just get fitter. A couple of years latter I caught the bug and started hitting the harder lines and found the 100mm travel and geometry wasn't up to it anymore. I then upgraded to a much more capable bike (Trek Remedy 9.7) and it is been the best purchase I have ever made. My thinking at the time was I would use the new bike for the hard
  9. Another happy fact 12 owner here. IMO the leap from the twenty5 series to these is equivalent to the leap you get going from a 600 series B&W to the 800's Huge performance for the dollar on offer here GLWTS
