I'm a guy with what you might call light audiophilic tendencies - I used to be sort of into the scene but I haven't dabbled in it for years but I have some decent gear. Probably the kind of stuff the serious audiophiles around here will deride as shit but oh well, I'm not interested in replacing it, so there. Just for the giggles, I have: Meridian G07 CD Plinius 8100 Integrated Amp B&W Nautilus 805 Speakers Transparent interconnects and speaker cable Anyways, that's sort of besides the point, but I note it for your reference, as I am interested in some kind of music server system, but I have no idea how/where to start looking, or even whether it's a search worth undertaking. I thought some of the folks on here might have some good advice. I'm liking the idea of a big music server that I could access with some kind of remote (or iPad or something?) and use to play back over my existing audiophile-lite grade system, with better fidelity than an iPod. There must be something that can kick out a CD-quality digital signal that I can run through a decent d/a and then through my amp and speakers. Presto! Playlists, no more changing disks, etc. Multi-room functionality would be nice, too... what's the best way to wire something like this? Cat-5? I presume I could contact an expensive expert to do this for me, but I'm wondering if it's possible to do something like this on a DIY basis.
