RE: Just researched the topic

You have a few choices for RPi and Roon.

Flash a new Debian image and install Roon manually
Flash the HiFiBerry image
Flash DietPi and configure/install Roon via UI
Use PcP as an end-point for Roon [no RAAT]

The top three are all Debian Jessie, DietPi is the lightest, HiFiBerry has less after-flash work for configuring, Debian maybe has the next less work for after-flash [just run a couple of commands to install the Roon Bridge].

Debian might need some extra work to find the HAT too.

FWIW, I tried them all several times with and without tweaks. I like PcP better for some reason. Don't know why because RAAT should be the clear winner.
