NAS Storage ?
I need some help / advice on choosing some NAS storage for my music.
I intend to rip my cd collection (about 800) into FLAC or high bitrate MP3 using EAC.
Therefore I need storage that will be big enough for my current collection and have enough room for expansion. Also looking for security so RAID is a must.
I will be accessing the storage from a PC running XP and from a labtop running vista. The plan is to connect the labtop to my Onkyo 875 via the HDMI connection.
I'm currently trialling iTunes, MediaMonkey and WinAmp as my player. I really like iTunes but frustrated by the fact it does not support FLAC. And I don't want to be restricted to just apple formats. Which is why I'm considering High Bit Rate MP3.
Any thoughts or recommendations on choice of hardware, media player or best EAC settings will be greatly received.
