Best value high quality streaming?
I'm a computer engineer who likes good music but who has been out of the hifi scene for a long time.
I have a client who is an audiophile - Tron valve amps, lots of high end kit.
He is looking to digitise his extensive CD collection and stream it from a computer in one room to the listening room.
Can anyone point me at a useful guide or answer a few basic questions?
1. Best format for digitising - FLAC?
2. Should we be looking at storing files locally in the listening room? Will we suffer loss of quality or throughput issues if trying to stream over a Homeplug system?
3. Best streaming device to use in teh listening roo - laptop + DAC? Dedicated media player?
This man is very serious about his music. Not looking to spend unlimited amounts but lookinig for a system that will satisfy his discerning ear.
Sorry to put noddy questions to you but any answers appreciated!
