RE: new NAS
The Melco has a player port that connects directly to the renderer without going through a switch. This eliminates noise produced by the electronics in the switch, which have not been designed with audio in mind.

Why should the NAS brand contribute to the quality of the audio? Can you elaborate?

The quality of the clock.

Many people make a common mistake: "it is digital, therefore there is no loss, so why bother".

Well, it is digital streaming. Which is totally different to TCP, where there is a guarantee that the file received is exactly the file sent, but is not a real time protocol.

In digital streaming, the whole chain from your NAS reading the file to your DAC converting a flux of data in an analog signal should be highly synchronized.

Therefore, everything which sends and receive data (NAS, switch, router) should have a very rigorous clock. Which means, a very stable electric current. As it is not the case, this is where you a pay a price to improve quality.

RE: new NAS
because my NAS and Linn are attached to my switch it will be pretty good because the clock was changed to a better one

Ds 118 is now complete with the Crucial MX 500 SSD. Content is stored and Minim Server 2 installed . Everything works fine great . I took same properties as with my 0.8X minim version and log shows no errors
