Roon is great but you need a Windows or MAC computer to run RoonServer that must be on all the time.

Not any more!

The sonicTransporter is a small, noiseless, Linux based system that runs Roon Server. You attach a USB drive to it and your collection becomes available to Roon.

You can also use it mount a NAS and share the music on it with Roon.

The sonicTransporter has a fast processor, 4GB of memory, and an SSD for the Roon database. This makes Roon run very fast even for a large music collection.

The sonicTransporter is the idea companion to the Sonicorbiter SE or microRendu Roon players.
