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.
