Nuclues plus bricked

Roon forced an update of my nucleus plus and its now bricked. Anyone else run into this issue?


I cant from a technical / hardware perspective.  From experience, it allowed me to load all my music on dedicated SSD, stopped all the interrupts I was experiencing using my laptop as my Roon core and did not break the bank.  Andrew Gillis, owner of SMG, provides excellent support and focuses on dedicated music servers.  There are many excellent solutions (and growing as streaming moves to mass market).  SGM has been in the home music server business as long as anyone.  

Join the club. I bricked two.  Moved on to Innuos Zenith MK3 and never looked back.  

I have Roon but not Nucleus. I find that making my own server and streamer out of Linux compatible mini computers has been very cost effective and I’ve never had this sort of failure after an upgrade.

Of course, there are other challenges, like keeping the OS up to date, and I’ve had to reboot my streamer a few times to get it to handshake with my DAC, but having 100% control over the hardware and the OS makes me feel less anxious and has saved me a lot of money. I know that my technical background serves me well here and that many may not be able to do the same, but if you are at all technically curious I do encourage this approach.
