Hardware/Software To Manage Multi-format, File-Based Audio Playback
I have thousands of mixed-format audio files on a server and duplicate instances of a lot of those tracks living in an iTunes library.
What hardware/software options do I have that can read, organize and playback multiple file formats (dsd, dsf, AAC, flac, mp3) from a network server (or be localized to an internal hard drive) and that will also have solid smart phone/tablet support so they can be used as a remote control? Streaming via wifi or wired is possible.
If there is not a dedicated hardware/software solution, what software only solution would work with either a 2006 mac mini, or a tiny Lenovo PC from 2014?
Thank you all for your learned suggestions.
