To be fair, the majority of my complaints aren't substantive. The lack of labeling on the on/off switch, the lack of model identification on the silkscreen, and the bad ergonomics of the recessed back panel are trivial. In fact, even the "having to reboot before the update will install" issue is not a deal breaker.
But the flakiness of the Roon backup and restore ARE significant issues, as is the fact that even WITH a good backup, not all data transfers. Among the things that are lost: Favorites tags, playlists, and some hand-entered metadata. The Roon community agrees with me, although some think that they've found "work-arounds" to overcome the issues, others say that the kludges don't always work.
Again, it bears mentioning that the backup and restore issues aren't part of the nucleus - but rather issues with Roon itself. So it isn't fair to blame the hardware platform for the shortcomings of the software.
On another note, the "static in the audio" issue has magically resolved itself. Whether it's gone for good or not remains to be seen. As to sound quality - no decisions yet. If there IS any difference between the nucleus and my previous Mac Mini Roon Core, it's definitely minor.
The show goes on! Boomzilla
Agreed... the backup problems are software issues with Roon. Safe to assume Rock has the same backup / restore issues?
