  1. Hi All, I'm thinking about moving my music collection onto a NAS drive, and accessing it via a mobile app/web page combination. I've used Volumio before briefly as part of a Raspberry Pi setup, but I have to admit I found it rather clunky. Any tips/suggestions on possible alternatives? Thanks!
  2. I have purchased from Geoff, and it was very straightforward! Lots of communication both ways, he even Skyped me to show me the DAC I bought. Full shipping details were provided, with lots of emails along the way!
  3. Oops double posted!

    Hi, Yep that's the one!
  5. Roon does look nice, but that's a pretty pricey piece of software! I'm happy to pay for stuff, but i'm not keen on the yearly subscription model
  6. I'm currently using a Mac and running iTunes, which is connected to my Rega DAC via USB. I like this solution as iTunes organises and tags my media library for me, has a simple interface and works really well with my iPod shuffles which I use when out and about. Currently with any high resolution files, i'm converting from FLAC to M4A files using XLD (a software re-encoder). I'm wondering if there isn't a better solution out there though, so wondered what them rest of the 'wam used?

    After a basic DAC to use with my headphone amp. Not terribly fussed about which revision - anyone got one collecting dust somewhere?

    I imagine you'll need a few more details on price and games before people can gauge interest?

    Thanks, can't seem to find them new so will keep my eyes open for something second hand. Still looking for something in the £150-200 range!

    The other product I've considered is a Teac UD H101. A near ish richer sounds has one for £129. Any opinions on this as an option?

    Possibly misterpete, will explore a few avenues first. Really appreciate you looking! JamieMcC: an ifi product is definitely on my radar, I'm just trying to get my head around the different models available. The other two (alas) look out of my reach currently. I paid £240 for the headphones, and felt that an amp that gets the most out of them shouldn't really cost anymore - am I being unrealistic here?

    Thanks, ill keep it in mind but i was hoping to spend less than £300

    jy3 that looks interesting, will keep an eye out for a second hand one
