LMS the best?? Surely you're joking?

I find LMS to be primitive compared to Roon but everyone has the right to their own opinion..(perhaps it's a case of rtfm?). I ran LMS with various Squeezeboxes for many years, and I couldn't wait to be rid of it when Roon came along.

In terms of processing power, Roon is not terribly hungry. A while back I was using a celeron J1700 (which has about 1/10th the processing power of a decent i7).

On this I had Roon running with it's database on an SSD. Library on NAS was >500GB. It outputted to Hqplayer (on the same machine) to upsample to 192k, then passed the data to Acourate Convolver (also on same machine) for real time convolution, then output via USB.

I never had any stablity problems. This used to run at a total CPU load of around 30-50%

I've since moved this to a new i7 and the whole caboodle now chugs along at around 4-6% cpu.
