NAS for music storage
So, just what is the most popular method of storing your CDs in Asia? It’s called a NAS and it’s surprising more people in other parts of the world haven’t yet picked up on it. But, just what is a NAS? How does it work and what are its advantages to, say, plain old USB storage?
Paul’s Daily posts is starting another informative series on just this subject.
NAS are cool and not too expensive. For example, the one pictured in this newsletter retails for $169 from Amazon and can store as many as 5,000 CDs at full resolution, which works out to about $0.04 a CD. Convert them to lossless FLAC or ALAC, you can store twice that many. That’s a hell of a lot of storage for not much money.
But there’s something else you should know about a NAS. NAS do not require additional computers in the system to work, like a USB drive does. You can build a music system with a NAS, a Bridge and a DAC. Or, a NAS and any UPnP player/renderer of your choice and control everything from your smart phone.
