Nuclues plus bricked

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


Newest update locked up my nucleus +. Unplugged it for  30 minutes and it then finished the update. All fine now.


Only trouble I’ve had with it.

When Roon works its great, when it does an update and gets hung up for an hour regardless of you rebooting, resetting network and all the other "tips" Roon suggests its infuriating. It never seems to be totally stable- I've had it for three years and want to pull my hair out with it about 4-6 times a year- every year. Their technical support and forums are also relatively unhelpful and blame everything on your network, never on their systems.

@monkeyade don't bother answering roxy. This person is a "drive-by commenter with nothing to add. I'm pretty sure they're just trying to get the high score, lol 😉🤪😍

The innous is a very good solution ,you can get from 2-4 T of SS drive 

Many like their interface and don’t use Roon , but like myself used to it 

and on the back end It has HQ player built in if you have a big HD and fast processor , I am just getting into it  you can literally Taylor your sound to your taste 

thstbeungsaid you still need a good dac, I still am saving to buy the Excellent       T+A 200 dac which has HQ player and several dithers and adjustments built in .

I know 7 people that have bought this dac .. I still stand by at $7k a no 🧠 er

and even at 2x that I have found nothing this well balanced ,and I have heard 

a bunch against it at several audio shoot outs in comparisons like chord Dave ,Mola Mola ,Lampizator all much more $$ 

@monkeyade, I’ve had a Nucleus since early on in the pandemic. Remember when you couldn’t go anywhere or do anything for two years straight? Fun huh? I bought it mostly for its plug and play functionality and convenience because now I focus more on the music than the technology of the thing. Roon automatically updates all of my mobiles and laptops while I’m sleeping, and I don’t have to physically store a large library of music that’s more easily accessed using Al Gore’s greatest invention.

But what is better than thought is that I go to most anywhere and be able to listen to what I was enjoying twenty some hours in the past, after flying overnight to Amsterdam. In my home setup I did have to put it on its own shelf and use a better LPSU though. I like the software. And as long as you only use it as a pass through and never use DSP, or any of kind of filters, or equalization, it works well. Putting a passive Ethernet filter with a good Ethernet cable before the Nucleus did improve the sound quality quite noticeably.
