    NAS Configuration Recommendations for Lumin

    Hi Peter -

    Iím in the process of buying a Synology DS920+ NAS to store my music. Unfortunately, Iíve hit the limits with my Lumin L1. Are there any device configurations you recommend?

    Iím going to purchase 4 12TB storage drives. Yes, lots of storage.

    I assume Minimserver is needed.

    Please advise.

    Thx!
    Mike

    Gads. 4 12TB drives. That's a lot of music. I have used 600MB on a 1TB drive, and that is more music than I can listen to the rest of my life.

    NAS Configuration Recommendations for Lumin

    I have 4 x 8 and 256 SSD for caching. WIth Raid thereís not so much room left. The DSD files occupy one pair and the rest is on the other pair.

    I have maybe 12 TB of content on the NAS altogether.

    Only 600mb of music NAS Configuration Recommendations for Lumin
    I wish I only I had that amount (there again I'm glad I haven't as I would not have come across all the great music I have over the years), as it would make things a little easier.
    Recently filled up a 2TB hard drive and have just purchased a 4TB.
    Perhaps I should have got 8TB NAS Configuration Recommendations for Lumin

    I was going to say HS-453DX but it does not hold four 3.5" drives.

    FYI I found this for DS920+ :
