Re: Backup possible?

thanks a lot, so the NODE 2 rips, stores it on the NAS and for play-back it sends it back to the NODE 2 that sends it to the amplifier?
NODE 2 to NAS is wireless and NODE 2 to amplifier is by any cable? i.e. digital or analog depending on were it is best to "uncompress" it?

Re: FLAC quality any difference?

Thanks AlfaGTV (by the way, I love that car!) Thats what I think too, especially as you say its compared to what others ripped, so it should be the same. I use XLD and/or MAX on my Mac. Not sure if there are any real differences. I thought the VAULT or NODE would check and compare the files too. So ...

Re: Bluesound "VAULT 2” or "NODE 2”?

Thanks Bob, this helps already a lot. For the moment I do not have a NAS yet. Seems though this is a way to go especially if you have a lot of titles you want to acces.

Re: FLAC quality any difference?

I read in some review (but cannot remember where I read it) ...they claimed a different sound, hence a better FLAC from one source over another. So in their ears the worshippers was a ripped FLAC file from a computer, It sounded worse than if ripped and then imported to the VAULT 2 for example. I de...

Backup possible?

Is it possible to do a Backup of the VAULT 2 or NODE 2 ?
It would be a pity to loose 2TB once its ripped due to HD failure.

We all know HD do stop working. The only question is when.
And follow-up question, can the HD be changed on a VAULT 2 or NODE 2 without too much hassle?

Best connection to an amplifier

Whats the best way to connect a NODE 2 or VAULT 2 to an amplifier?
Optical? Coax? Wireless? What s the difference?

Using a wireless connection I am worried of drop-out's and that my wireless router might be too busy with other things.

FLAC quality any difference?

Some people claim there is a difference on FLAC quality. If its made on a computer vs if its made by Bluesound or Innuos device. Seems strange to me but who knows.
