I currently own a ReadyNAS Duo v1...
...but am tempted by the huge price reduction on the ReadyNAS NV+v2 here in the UK (it's currently ú160 - which is far less than I originally paid for my Duo v1).
However, unlike the Duo, there is no iTunes Server provision on the NV+v2.
My question is, without iTunes Server being present, is LMS sufficient to manage all my existing music when transferred to a NV+v2?

But you don't have to use iTunes to do those tasks. There are plenty of other non-server software packages that can take care of those tasks nicely.

I already burn my music on my Mac Mini by utilising iTunes, but choose the 'media' folder on my ReadyNAS Duo v1 where I require the music to be stored. This is then accessed by my Squeezebox.
So, from what you indicate, the omission of iTunes Server on the ReadyNAS NV+v2 isn't a problem, as my music would continue to be stored in the 'media' folder of LMS.
Is that correct?My Mac can go all the way to XI
