Stream Magic 6 with USB Hard drive?
I'm considering going to or adding a streamer/NAS (CA Stream Magic 6 or Naim) to compliment or add to my existing set up, can anyone answer this question for me?
I have a Verbatim 500GB external hard drive - can I use this over USB as a music server with something like the Stream Magic 6? I have no idea whether it's uPnP (though my laptop recognises it immediately when I plug it in) or would I need to buy a purpose-built NAS? Would it work but just cause me a massive tech-headache?
At the moment all my PC/iPod music is in iTunes (99% in Apple Lossless) but I would be willing to transcode it or re-rip it all to FLAC or WAV if this will help?
Thanks in anticipation
