[#1] Suggestion for digital sources    
What was considered CAS is now a lot more complicated: Storage (usually a computer or NAS) and a streamer or network bridge (with) or add another external DAC.

I'm starting on this to replace my CD player (Wadia 861) and to make it easier for other family members to use Spotify, Airplay etc.

I'm humbly asking C-hing for any advice on the above with $40--50k budget (new or 2nd had models)

Many thanks in advance.

If you have your external DAC already, I will recommend Aurender N10, a decent player with supberb sound quality, easy to control, Aurender got the best free Apps I have had (besides ROON, which you have to pay )!

Thx Ming Sir!

I have a NAS for songs storage, computer (iTubes) but no streamers, no DAC
I'm interested in Roon though...

No experience with external DAC - find one that matches with player is a bit challenging ?
Advice would be most appreciated.

You are welcome, you might also consider Aurender A10, on top of a streamer, A10 has built-in Dac, but there will be some trade-off/compromise in sound quality !

For sure, N10 is better than a NAS. If you want to stay with your NAS, IMHO, u may consider DCS Network Bridge, 2nd hand around 15k -20k. For DAC, there are tons of option, you may check the following

Thx. I think I need to study more about the role of NAS vs the streamer.
I previously thought NAS or any external storage is but a storage for the 1's and 0's but apparently even that storage and server does impact sonic quality and of course a transport player (i.e. streamer).

So thanks for the wonderful resource...
