I have had my music stored on an Addonics NAS for the last 8 years and it works with sonos fine, simply acting as an NAS. I now see it is no longer supported and my mac has stopped accessing it. It is the same size as a raspberry pi with a usb drive plugged in. Marvellous bit of kit really.
Whst should i replace it with? Should I go for another NAS or a streaming solution like plex? What is the difference? Apart from the obvious. The NAS should be small and quiet and still supported.
I have a raspberry Pi v3. I am guessing I could probably just install a linux on it, mount the drive and share it. Is there any advantage to having plex on top? Any alternatives?
