Help finding the Right DLNA NAS

Recommended Posts

The foundation of my next music server will require a DLNA compatible NAS. I will be able to connect an Ethernet server directly to this new DAC. My current external hard drive is not DLNA compatible. I need to find a NAS that has Ethernet and is DLNA compatible. I checked out some products by Buffalo, but I see that they had an iTunes server embedded. My entire library is in FLAC and I understand that iTunes is not FLAC compatible. What DLNA NAS devices are available that will allow FLAC? I only want to spend what is absolutely necessary - so, as long as the audio is not affected, I don't care how inexpensive it is. I need at least 500 GHz. Suggestions will be appreciated…

Thank you.

So I'm guessing flac files can be stored on the Buffalo NAS units just fine but any sort of built-in player / library functionality will not work with flac.


DO you need this to just store music files, or do you require this NAS to actually use a feature similar to a built-in iTunes server?

First - I apologize that I posted this same thread in two areas. I didn't think the first one was ever issued.

I think you have cleared this up for me. It sounds like the NAS will be fine as a dedicated storage device, which is all I will need it for (as long as it still functions without an activated computer).
