Would really appreciate some basic advice about networked music
I am sure this is a very obvious question but I would be grateful if someone could find the time to answer. I currently stream music from my Macbook Pro to my stereo via an apple airport express, this is connected to a dacmagic and then to an Exposure amplifier.
When I am not in front of the laptop I control my music via remote app from my iPhone.
I am looking to expand my digital music collection so am looking at getting a NAS drive. I have a few questions though.
1. Would a normal hard drive with an airport exteme have any benefits over a NAS drive?
2. After setting up a NAS drive would this mean I wouldn't always have to have my Macbook Pro on to be able to access my itunes music via remote app on my iPhone?
Thanks in advance for any answers.
