    Nas

    I am currently using a Netgear Readynas Ultra Plus 2. I have had it for 6 years or so and it looks like it is about to fail (I get repeated messages telling me that V+12 power is out of range). Apparently this is a common problem and is related to the chassis. Not sure I want to buy another ReadyNas to be honest.

    Could anyone suggest a suitable replacement that will run LMS? I have around 700 albums and 10,000 songs ripped to FLAC.

    Any help would be gratefully received.

    Many posters here (myself included) use a NAS to hold the music files and a Raspberry Pi to run LMS. I use piCorePlayer on a Pi3, but others use Max2Play - various threads in the Unix/Linux forum describe these. My NAS is an old QNAP, currently 2359 albums/25287 tracks. The Raspberry Pi runs LMS better than the NAS did.

    Thanks for the advice. Still got 3 SBT's and one Radio. Not sure I'm ready for the Pi as yet though.

    If you use a nas for more than just storing your music, like I do for mail server, file sharing and photo's, a nas is a very good host for lms too. Just make sure you choose a nas with a good OS which makes installing lms easy.

    Rpi or Odroid

    I have a HP Microserver but for LMS I use an Odroid U3 (I don't remember the date I start to use it, but more than a year, sure). No one stop, fault or so, I think it is a little bit faster than the Raspberry (it use eMMC instead of microSD) but also the Raspberry is enough to drive some Squeezebox Players.
    The major advantage is a little bit power usage, no noise so you can put it everywere.
    Also if You don't know quite nothing of Linux, You can find the distro (Max2Play or piCorePlayer) ready to go.
    Try it, it's not a big expense!

    I started our just using a slaved HDD on PC tower running LMS I eventually purchased a prefabbed NAS by Asustor. At the time I purchased AS-604T the NAS packaged for ADM included Logitech Media Server. ADM is a proprietary platform for Asustor based on OpenSuse and the Ext4 file system. The Gui is very easy, my recommendation is a prefabbed NAS rather than making your own with a bulky chassis running FreeNAS . Synology qNap Asustor etc...
