Nucleus or Nucleus+?

Both the Nucleus and Nucleus+ servers look and function in exactly the same way. Their difference is primarily down to the Intel processor used in each model, which shifts their speed and workload capacity.

The standard Nucleus is suited to smaller multi-room environments or for installations where complex DSP processing is not required. It's also suited to smaller library sizes. Nucleus+ is the more advanced solution for complex or high-end environments and for lightning-fast handling of larger music libraries.

Key Features:

- Manages your music stored on USB hard drives, NAS, and streamed content from TIDAL and Qobuz
- Runs Roon OS and is controlled by the Roon apps for iOS, Android, macOS, Windows
- Streams music to Sonos, AirPlay, Google, Roon Ready and tested and many other audio devices
- Roon OS boasts a string of features and enhancements only available to Nucleus customers
- Silent design with no fans or moving parts
