Re: I am thinking of getting an Audiophile only server
I highly suggest using a Mac Mini and a high-end DAC. For music you can't beat iTrax 24/96 wav files and Linn Records 24/96 FLAC files. The Linn FLAC files are studio master quality and the same files they use to create their SACDs. No DRM on either site. This is the adult version of iTunes and to a certain extent Music Giants. The DRM and somewhat inferior sound quality from Music Giants, compared to Linn and iTrax, really turns me off.
If you want the Bentley of Music Servers just get the Sooloos Music System.
