Home Digital Drive

Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Trying to avoid PC anything

Never sure about the Bryston. I'm sure it does what it's designed to do very well, but does it do all you want it to?

I have the NAD M12 that is in effect a digital and analogue preamp and DAC plus (with a board added) a BluOS streamer. I'm very pleased with it.

My music is stored on a RipNAS - combined ripper and NAS. I've had this for some years and the hard drives are nearly full.

I'd like a single box that rips, stores the ripped files, but also plays CDs without ripping them first. Friends' CDs for example, that I may not want to keep. There's not much out there, but NAD has just come up with such a box - the M50.2. The trouble with that is that it duplicates much of the M12 and this has rendered it substantially over-priced.

Everything on the M12 is there (fewer inputs) except the all-important DAC and IR remote. If it included these I'd sell the M12 and all would be rosy, but that's not possible. A cut-down version of M50.2 (rip, store, play only) would suit M12 owners, or add the DAC and remote and we'd have a great one-box device that will directly feed a power amp.
