I recently bought Roon lifetime because I got tired of recurring yearly fees. I converted a new NUC8i7BEH to an Akasa Turing fanless case. This exercise was fraught with challenges. Tha Akasa case didn’t quite line up with the ports and I had to tweak the hardware.
Then loading a Linux clone, Roon ROCK had it’s own challenges. Once loaded I needed a backup of the DB that took an hour then an hour to load it. My principle computer couldn’t see ROCK and I had to work with a notebook.
Finally all loaded and configured and installed.
Great sound and running very cool.
