To NAS or Not to NAS-More RPI adventures

Got a DIGI+ standard card and PcP non audio. WiFi works as advertised! Not sure yet that the sound is as good as the Dig+Pro.

Just for kix I thought to try Volumio in the same rig. My music files are on a USB HDD attached to one of the PC's on my network. No matter how I enter the parameters into Volumio it can't mount my music drive. Now somewhere on the volumio site is a FAQ that suggests that it plays better with NAS than with a drive hooked to a PC.

I saw Cut-Throat's post below about mounting LMS on a NAS and I'm intrigued about the prospect. I don't know a lot about NAS, are there any pitfalls? Thinking of Synology single bay unit.
