Lossless audio streaming / storage NAS – DSD & FLAC & WAV

NAS for Lossless audio streaming including these file formats DSD & FLAC & WAV

Not that long ago most popular music storage format was a CD. Than MP3 took over because of its comparably tiny file size. But there are many people who can actually hear the difference between CD quality or compressed format audio. Also, it is not easy to find the favorite song when you keep hundreds of disks. With a NAS you store all CD music in an uncompressed format. Qnap and Synology will let you store thousands of CDs on a RAID system and also play using free music app. Using DLNA you can cast songs to smart speakers or other audio systems and enjoy ultimate quality soundtracks. I have listed few most popular choices for lossless audio storage and streaming.
