Not sure what the budget is just yet, but... looking to buy -

1) streamer to stream stuff off my NAS, FLAC support is a must;
2) cheapest CD player (will be plugged into DAC/receiver);
3) receiver (under $1000 please)

Need some recommendations regarding the set-up... should I spring for a separate DAC or reply on the one in the receiver? Also... is a CD player even worth buying at this point? If I find a decent streamer, everything will be on the NAS in a lossless formart anyway, so, no need for CD player. But, I can't find one with a useable interface.

Finally, is there a good forum/web site to read about all this crap?
