Have come to the conclusion I should probably purchase a budget NAS drive to connect to my Wiim Pro so I can access my music library conveniently without having a PC connected via USB to the DAC (which is the cause of endless problems) I am pretty clueless with all this tech being almost exclusively stuck in the world of vintage... but will get there soon I hope!

Is anyone here using a Synology DS120J for their library? This is the most budget single bay NAS from Synology, I'm guessing the specs are just fine to stream FLAC files via the Wiim Pro?

Other option is Synology have just released the DS124 which has a better processor and 1GB ram
