Library control


Recommended Posts

The more I read the more I learn.

 

I found a review in the equipment section of a remote control for browsing your music library that was dated 2008. I imagine by now there are updated products for browsing and would like to know what, if any, remote control is recommended for a PC based DAC audio system?

 

I will be purchasing a new computer to interface with my DAC and would also appreciate suggestions on platform (Apple vs PC) and hard drive (solid state vs disk).

 

Thanks,

 

Stan

There is quite a bit assembled already, cf: Suggested Hardware

 

At some point it boils down to a matter of taste. Many here like the mac mini. Typically the library is placed on a large external drive. Firewire is a good choice. Some recommend bus-power. I use an external power supply fed by a different circuit (they pollute with rf line noise). Some people put in an SSD and more memory. I haven't. I recommend starting out with the standard stuff and upgrading/modifying as you see a need.

 

Apple's "Remote" is a free ipod/ipad/iphone app that works well. It was just updated a few weeks ago.

Thanks wgscott, I have been reading history on this site and see little discussion on hand held devices being used to browse one's PC music library. Seems Ipod/phone is the major handheld interface.

 

I'm thinking of using an Archos 70 with J River Media Jukebox on my PC, only thing is I haven't been able to find out if this will work.

 

PS, I really like the H. S. Thompson quote!
