HI, could you recommend a NAS that is quiet in operation
The NAS will only be used to store music that will be played on my DAC streamer
The NAs will be situated in the lounge so low noise is important
NAS itself do not generate noise. The drives inside do. If you had SSD instead of HDD you would have absolute silence. But If SSD seems to bee to expensive then WD Red spin slower and generate less noise. Many people actually use laptop slim HDD which also reduces sound quite a lot.
For music streaming Synology j series NAS would be a good fit. Models like DS120j, DS220j and other bay options.
I hope this helps.
