Best NAS for Roon media storage
I’m planning on setting up a Roon Core server and want to store the Music Library on a NAS. I currently have a Thecus N4200PRO with 4 3TB WD drives in a RAID 5 configuration. I’m not sure Thecus is the best NAS provider for this purpose. There’s a site (https://roononnas.org/en/roon-on-nas) focused on setting up a Roon NAS and they suggest Asustor, QNAP & Synology products. Also, I’ve had my current NAS for over 5 years, it was set up for local backup of PC’s & Mac’s. So now I’m expanding it purpose and plan to rip and store my CD collection on it. If necessary or advisable, I’d buy a new NAS box and “move” my 4 WD drives to it and set it up for Roon service. You’re advice would be greatly appreciated.
I have added server tech requirements below. But based on that here are the best options :
You will need Core i series or Xeon based NAS.
- Intel Core i3, Ivy Bridge+
- 4GB RAM
- SSD boot drive
- 1440 x 900 Resolution
Supported Platforms for Roon Core or Roon Remote
- Windows 7+ (10 recommended)
- macOS 10.9+ (10.14 recommended)
- NAS platforms
