I’m just about to purchase a MINI86 but before that I’d still a few questions to ask. I have already crawled the forum, I found some answers but not all.
I have one iMac at my studio with iTunes and a LARGE collection (over a TB of AIFF). iTunes and its library are on Dropbox. At home I have a (very) old Macbook with dropbox installed, iTunes with the BitPerfect plugin, the computer is plugged to an USB DAC. This installation is really great because thanks to dropbox, whatever I do on my iMac’s iTunes is automatically synced with the one at home. However, the MBP is about to die and I need to find a solution, to buy a new MBP isn’t an option.
- Would it be possible to install a dropbox instance on Volumio in order to get the external HD plugged to the MINI86 in sync?
- Once the full iTunes library is on the external hard drive and Volumio has finished to scan the gazilions of folders, would I be able to do a research by albums, artist / playlist…etc or would I have to go through all the iTunes folder manually?
- When BitPerfect handles the playback, it automatically re-configures my DAC to the format of the music track being played (16/44.1 or 24/96…etc) does Volumio do the same?
Thanks a lot in advance!
