|( I’m hoping the helpful people here will be able to assist with my understanding and also perhaps point me in some directions (if there are better alternatives to those I’ve considered). Firstly my current setup is: PC – with iTunes; holding all music and photos (upstairs in spare bedroom) Airport Express to my HiFi in my living room (acting as a client to my wifi network) Apple TV to my AV amp, also in the living room, connected to iTunes via Home Sharing O2 Router under the stairs iPhone I’m after the often referred ‘holy grail’ of music streaming for those that use iTunes, which is to have access to the music I have without any need for the PC/Mac to be on. I’m currently looking to start this off in the kitchen, but would like the option to expand the solution going forward. I recently purchased (probably by mistake) an ATV for the living room. It’s all set up to my AV amp and TV and has had some use. I’m now looking to try and access my music which is currently on a FULL hard drive on my PC upstairs (eventually this will be upgraded to either a new PC or, more likely, Mac). Originally I was hoping to purchase a Mac, get a TimeCapsule and use that to hold all my music/photos etc allowing access to my ATV/Airport/iPhone for full music streaming without the need for a Mac to be on. That was my hope, and I now realise this is not possible (unless I have a Mini Mac or equivalent permanently on somewhere). So I’ve turned my head to NAS drives and other media streaming solutions. Firstly: 1 If I purchase a NAS drive (not sure what one to get) and transfer all my music on there (which will hopefully be relatively simple) I will be able to access this via a Sonos system. I understand this appears to be the only system that does this??? 2 I will not be able to access this media content from either my ATV or Airport without the PC/Mac being on??? Is the above correct? If so, I’m thinking of purchasing a NAS drive (recommendations greatly appreciated, but currently looking at a Synology one, although not sure which) and then heading down the S5 Sonos and Sonos Bridge route (the later being connected to my router under the stairs). This will allow me to listen to music in the kitchen via the S5. I will then be able to add further Sonos ‘hubs’ around the home as and when cost/desire (former first!) allow. My questions really are; am I thinking along the right lines? Have I missed anything? Also if anyone has any recommendations for what kit to get that would be also helpful. Budget is reasonably modest, but I know a decent NAS and storage is looking close to £400 plus £350 or so for Sonos and Bridge. Hope the above makes sense? Help very much appreciated!
