Home Computer Audio Asylum

Music servers and other computer based digital audio technologies.

Only 10 years for me first with PC then switched to Mac soon after

I started with CDs ripped to my home office PC in 2007 and then the PC + Squeezebox also in 2007. The Squeezebox was located in the kitchen.

Prior to that when not running my main Cary or Accuphase CDP, I would run a couple Sony CD changers on random play. The CDs are now stored in the basement.

Switched to Mac in 2008. I run a dedicated Mac Mini music server (2012 model) that runs reliably 24/7. The Mac Mini is in my home office setup driving a USB-to-SPDIF converter via coax to DAC while I have the microRendu network streamer in the basement driving another USB DAC. Music files all reside on the Mac Mini but I also stream Tidal via Roon interface.

I still own a couple CD players but rarely ever use them. Same for the vinyl rig. They're all boxed up down in the basement.
