What are the sound quality advantages of getting music off a local drive rather than streaming it off a network drive NAS via hardwire in your house? I can go both ways and am not sure what's better. Coming off either a Mac Mini or a PC. To the local drive, I can go firewire, Esata, or USB. Thanks.

Agreed. And the obvious advantage of the NAS is more than one streamer can access the data at the same time.
