Just a thought: when my HDX went belly-up, I've transferred all my music to a QNAP NAS. All music is in FLAC format. During the last year, I've made some minor changes to the metadata; e.g. adding a question mark to some file names because that was not possible with the HDX.
If I would transfer my music to a Uniti Core, will it be possible to have all the files in the 'music' folder so I can keep on making those minor adjustments using the Naim app?
It would be a pity if I have to store everything under 'downloads' because to my knowledge, editing seems not possible using the Naim app.
Any thoughts are welcome!
I think you'd be better off keeping externally edited files in the downloads folder and making any further edits using Metadatics or similar, which is very straightforward, just not done from within the app. There are more editing options available doing it like this than there are within the app.
Very good point. If I had a Core (or a US) I would indeed keep all my data in the downloads folder for interoperability and consistency. I guess one can export the music folder data, cleanup the folder and reimport the data into the downloads folder.
As I understand it, Naim have always said that editing metadata or making any other changes in the music folder can cause problems with the database, and must be avoided, in all their servers, and that was the basis of my suggestion. If one finds their editing facilities too limited, that's a separate issue, albeit a valid one, perhaps, especially for those with a classical music collection.
