I'd stay away from a NAS!
I'd buy a NUC (probably a last season model to keep the budget low).
The NUC allows for a 2nd 2,5 inch disk inside. For backups attach a USB disc.
NAS provided software support usually sucks - last time I looked.
LMS won't get updated, if you manage to get the latest version at all.
If you want to run great UPNP servers like Serviio - you'll face issues again.
Free choice and handling of software rules. Flexibility is key.
The two NASs I had several years back ended up in the bin very quickly.
And then. If you want to run DSP tasks (audio/video processing) a NAS runs out of steam at slightest load.
Beside that you obviously can use a NUC for desktop purposes and even as a renderer too. Again, flexibility rules.
Bottom line. Better think twice!
And don't let you fool by "the NAS sounds better" - better then what!?!?
I'm running latest Ubuntu Gnome as base on my NUC server btw.
But you can also use audio focused stuff like e.g VortexBox or similar.
Mine gets updated all the time. Synology... Plugins a lot like LMS itself.
Yep, that's what I've been responding on your posts numerous times.
Nice try to turn it back on me.
Reading properly what's been written and understanding it is a basic skill.
Somebody like you should develop it over time, at least when looking at the quantity of your posts. I havn't given up hope on you.
I was talking about "my" two NASs and said "last time I looked". Completely false ??
A PC more flexible than a NAS. Completely false???
Serviio as prefered UPNP server. Completely false??
And I'm wondering what would be popping up, if I'd have a closer look at your Synology.
BTW. Did I ever tell you that an alias tells a lot about a person...
Just grow up kid!
