NAS-stuff (Part 2): Synology Diskstation DS211/J + Ünnlink 192 + XPenology + ITX-Case
so, okay, 😉
as i still plan to buy some Topping D50S, S.M.S.L Sanskrit 10th Mk.2 or Topping D10S,
(picture: SMSL Sanskrit 10th MKII, 110$, Amazon->Link )
i´ve meanwhile bought a very simple so called mini-DAC 😉 (just for converting tos/coax to chinch for my home tv) from aliexpress for only 9$ !! (incl.shipping) -> the “Ünnlink 192Khz Digital to Analog Audio Converter Decoder Spdif Toslink Coaxial to Analog Stereo 3.5mm 2RCA DAC with BT for TV”->https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001102727604.html
its a nice little guy 😉 , absolutely no problem with it and u will be surprised how good the audio quality is ! 😉 (and we are here on a self-called “hi-fi”-site 😉 with a lot of tests for hifi-gear) …
u can buy it (him 😉 ) without a problem..
Synology-OS (“DSM”) Part 2:
and as said, as i got meanwhile data-rates up to 60-70MB/s with a non “J“-version i´m absolutely blown away by this wonderful Synology-OS (“DSM”) that i thought about how to get it on “normal” PCs, linux-devices and there is a way/possibility !!
“XPenology” !! ”
Xpenology: The Definitive Guide (2020 Update)
i don´t know if this is “half-official” or something (although its an “open source”-project) but i will give it a try in the next weeks/months and report about it..
because i like the design from the original Synology-Diskstations (the white ones) very much and because of these great OS i thought i´ve build my own little NAS (and mainly because the greater Synology-DSes are unbelievable expensive !! (in comparison to other PC-parts)) with a little cube + some ITX-boards !! for example)->
Thermaltake CA-1B8-00S6WN-01 Core V1 Mini-ITX Snow Edition PC-Case white->
(around 50$, Amazon->Link:https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B015UDUAKG/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?smid=A3JWKAKR8XB7XF&psc=1 )
or “Thermaltake” direct link->https://de.thermaltake.com/core-v1-snow-edition.html )
will post/report more then about it + no worry, i´ll be coming back to the “main-theme” here (modding ESSabre 90xxQ2M/Pro-things) in future !! 😉
