SOLD: Mac mini system - price reduced
« on: 9 Jul 2019, 11:58 am »
Up for your consideration is a custom, turn-key Mac Mini based music streaming and storage system. I run it headless using a remote control utility that allows me to access it through my laptop.  Original owner sold it to finance a better ($5000) server.

The processor on this Mini is able to handle anything your throw at it. The Mac is running High Sierra. However, you are able to upgrade for free to a new version if you wish, but Audirvana+ in particular in incredibly stable under High Sierra and I literally use this computer for nothing other than serving music.  Reportedly it's sound quality matches anything available for under $4000.

With the Intel i7 processor and 16GB of RAM, you can install and run Roon with no issues whatsoever, including the more demanding DSP functions.
I am the second owner (after 4 months) and am selling this system to fund a move into a different direction.  It’s been in a kid, pet, and smoke free home.  The complete system is as listed below:

wonderful music streamer and Server.
