I'm not sure if this is a Roon problem or a Qobuz problem, but...

I put iStat menus on the mini and let it run... this is my CPU playing a 24/96 album.

Any DSP running?

HQPlayer 

 

PCM

sinc-L 

NS9

to 24/192

edit: and volume control

 

When I was watching activity monitor earlier HQPlayer was taking significantly less CPU than Roon Server was.

Strange.

I think that what's happening is there is some OS service/program that is either interfering or fighting with Roon for resources when it starts up periodically, and based on how much of that resource Roon is using, it either keeps going or crashes. I don't know how to explain it any other way.

I should clarify this, Roon Server was using more CPU only while downloading the song. After that Roon Server settles down.

Some of the OS that I am seeing pop up and using a good amount of CPU are

 

Kernel_task, makes sense

Backupd_helper, I have time machine disabled if that matters.
Window Server

mds, same as below?

mds_stores, I think this is spotlight. Can I turn that off?

mdworker_shared, same as above I think.
