Audirvana on NUC

Hello All,

first time post here. I just re-discovered Audirvana and I very much like it’s SQ! I have it running on a Mac Mini 2018 i7 and I feed it via Ethernet into my Devialet Expert 120. The sound is fantastic, much much better than Roon!

As my Mac is heavily involved in massive MatLab computing, I am thinking of migrating Audirvana to a single-purpose computer. I am thinking of a NUC i5/i7 devoted solely to Audirvana, running headlessly. Has anyone done this, or would an older Mac Mini be better suited for this?

Thanks for and input!

Regards, Paul
