DIY A Roon Core for < $500

Hello everyone,
Roon Core requires more CPU than an R Pi can provide, so maybe consider this ASRock mini PC, for around $300:
You'll need to add memory and storage, and optionally a linear power supply, but this is a pretty sweet and relatively high power unit.  You could add a wireless keyboard and mouse to turn it into your living room Internet PC.
Hello ,

Thanks for sharing. How is this better or different than a NUC?  Basically less expensive or does it also have better features?
Ok I see.  Thank you.
