I have the below system and thinking to change the digital player
The car: Seat Leon HB
Amp 2 X Audison Thessis Quattro ; total 8 channels to run 4 way active system
Drivers: Thessis Orchestra 3 way Active
Subw: Pioneer 12" Slim ( inside spare tire ) sealed conditon
DSP: Audison Bitone.1
SFC unit for sample frequency converter dowmsample to 24/48Khz if anything bigger is sent
Transport: Pioneer 9310bt ( custom built VW unit ) ( DVD, NAV, Bluetooth, USB, AUX, Iphone Cable to connect my iphone4S , running 1 X RCA to DSP
Digital Player: WD live ( hidden , remote control receiving point extended ) 1st Gen ( Playing flac files) running 1 X optical to DSP and composite video out to Transport unit to see the file name.
All my system is working ;
My problem is the slow and sucking WD live when connecting the 500 GB HDD,which has 300 GB of FLAC files.
WD often stuck and has to be restarted ( you have to restart the car for this )
It also takes alot of time when you try to find a track.
I was concidering Logitech squeezebox touch to add with NAS system ,( although the unit is being discontinued , was after sound quality )
I have the question what do I need to run it in car ?
SBT + HDD with NAS system + small wireless 4 port Router
Connect SBT to HDD with LAN cable ?
How to connect the rest as dont want to connect the HDD to SBT through USB only.
Do I need to connect to internet all the time ?
CAn I distribute iphone shared connection so that SBT can reach to internet for internet radio ? and otjers ?
