when I did it, I just plugged the USB HDD (it was a 2TB) and set up the share in my routers web console. You need to make sure you Router has this capability though 1st, if it does you should be able to stream whatever content you have on the drive, youll also be able to access from a local computer as it will be set up as a share on the network.......
YOu should really decide what you want, RAID is good for having "failure" protection, but remember that youll be getting at least half as much space as what you put in.....You can get USB HDD enclosures for much cheeapre that are non raid (or external HDDs pre assembeld) put a few Hard Drives in there connect it to your router and voilla you have network storage.......That is only if your router suports this function though, not all do.....
As long as your receiver has netowrk capability it should be able to see the network share of the HDD plugged into the router and play\browse the music on there.....
