Can't have everything
Try this new dac/streamer:

I thought you just installed a NAS,if the AAM acts as a NAS,why did you? Also,Sirmorebeer,I have a streamer already,that has a dac,plus I have a Chord Hugo,The thing I am looking for stores all your music,like a NAS(which I don't want) and rips cd's,maybe it is more of a renderer than a server.

Tony you should get and use the NAS for a backup. If a server loses the HD or SSD you have nothing (except a lot of ripping to do over again). I would recommend at least a dual bay NAS that mirrors. I lost a drive in one of my NAS units and all I had to do was put in a replacement drive. It re-mirrored itself and I could still use the NAS while it was re doing the mirror. Hardware does fail.

That said if the NAS unit itself dies the drive(s) can't be read anywhere (keeps people from stealing a HD with data on it and reading it in another unit unless the NAS is the exact same model). I have 2 cheapie NAS units (same model) for that reason. Once I had the original NAS with all the music I had on it I powered it down and pulled one of the drives. After the drives were formatted in the backup NAS I failed the primary drive by powering the unit down - pulling the drive and powering back up again. Powered back down again and replaced the drive I pulled with the one that had all the music on it. Powered back up and the NAS replicated all the music I had to the empty drive.

Just a thought
