    Default Network audio servers : Innuos, etc

    Besides Innuos and Bluesound there are another alternatives? I want a music server to rip my cd´s, and after stream it!

    Ive been through a few options. A QNAP NAS into a Schiit DAC has been my favourite option.

    I use Audirvana on Macbook Pro and use XLD to rip CD. Not as good as an InnuOs though.

    You wouldn't be disappointed Mike, very good sounding bits of kit and very user friendly. I had mine out of the box and up and running in 10 minutes.

    Another vote for this, easy to use. EAC may be free but it's not the most user friendly.
