    Nex NAS needed, Roon-ready powerwise

    My Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra 2 has begun to cock up big time, some known PSU error.
    Looking to replace it with some other 2-disk unit, powerful enough for Roon and also having LMS installed or possibility to easily install LMS on it without Linux hacking.
    Any suggestions?

    Some good information here:

    The minimum specs for running Roon come at a steep price in a NAS: the recommended QNAP is $900 before adding drives. You might consider a small tower PC such as this Lenovo:

    Mine has a SSD, big storage HD, and a swappable backup HD using this tray:

    I'm running LMS on Windows, but no reason linux wouldn't also work and Roon has builds for it.

    Let's forget Roon then and it looks like QNAP is out of the picture, too

    So there are no alternatives for a NAS with LMS on it?
