After having several false starts, we finally figured out how to build a quality audiophile digital music system that met the following requirements:
- One place to store all of our music – including 400 CDs
- Multi room control of music selection, on/off and volume control of audio equipment
- Portability of music library- automobiles and cottage
- Ease of Use
- Backup / Restore capability for computer issues
See article of how to build it and our our real life experiences between iTunes and Windows Media Player. I doubt it will ever end, but we have something that seems to work well.
