Naim Audio NS01 music server for sale housed in Naim's classic series chassis.
In excellent condition and newly serviced, including:
PCI music card upgraded;
CD loader mechanism;
It is fitted with two 400GB hard drives in a fault tolerant mirrored configuration. This is sufficient space to store approximately 750 CDs in uncompressed WAV format or 1,500 CDs in lossless compressed FLAC format. The NS01's capacity can also be expanded with external network storage from a NAS device, PC or Mac. It can also play files stored on flash memory sticks or hard drives connected via the USB sockets on the front and rear panels.
I am about to list this on ebay, but will let it go here for £800 + P&P - no offers.

The title says it is a 3B-ST and has 250w per channel into 8 ohms. This is incorrect - the 3B-ST is a 120w per channel amp (into 8 ohms); 250w per channel is the nominal power output of the 4B-ST, a different amp altogether (and physically twice as large). The odd thing is that the rear panel of the amp in the auction says 250w next to each output. This can therefore only be a rear panel from a 4B, not a 3B. This suggests to me that the amp may have been messed about with.
I'd advise steering clear of this one.
& I did!
Even using a linux computer the whole thing took about 10 minutes
Much faster to use than before and works just fine on a Mk.1 Raspberry Pi.
Expectation bias is telling me it sounds a bit better too, but that, of course, is likely to be a right old load of guff!
