New to Digital Hi-fi
I'm fairly happy with my current audio / video set up, however, I want to look at ripping all my CDs / DVDs onto the NAS that I'm building.
I've had some conflicting advice from Richer Sounds and Superfi and compared with what I've read I'm even more confused: (you need a dac, no you don't you need a new AV amp, no you don't you need a streamer etc. etc?)
Basically, I want to listen to lossless audio and watch films making the best use of my existing equipment or a small investment, with some advice for future upgrade / expansion. The audio is much more important to me at this stage.
My intention is to rip via dbpoweramp to my NAS and then connect a networked Apple TV via HDMI to my AV amp for the time being and control via iTunes from my iPad, with a view to upgrading a bit later to make better use of the Cyrus 8 and Dynaudios.
Am I missing something obvious or is there a better way to go? I'd grateful for any help as I feel like I'm in the "Not the Nine O'Clock News" sketch trying to buy a gramophone
