Quietest NAS or ways to reduce noise in any NAS

Quietest NAS

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.
