Hi everyone and thank you in advance for your time. I am willing to start the diy hi-fi journey even though I have average-guy computer skills. I am considering using a raspberry pi with a dac or go all allo and use sparky with piano and kali.
As i will make a significative investment on this I want to achieve a clearly superior quality to my usb audioquest dac. My question here today is do I need a NAS for a optimal quality or can i skip buying it and use a usb hdd connected to the sbc, with no changes in quality whatsoever? Can a hdd at any RPM handle the best quality files one could possibily have?
PS: I feel that the file management set up is not as well explained in the website or User Manueal chapter in the main docs.
