Looking at my current set-up I think it's high time I joined the world of streaming and I am looking for opinions from other members as to what they/you would do with my scenario.
I have a 200/282 based system - my sources are a CDX2 (1st gen, no XPS or DAC) and an LP12.
I don't currently stream and am looking for an easy way to get into it whilst preserving the character Naim sound. Dealers I've approached have steered me towards an NDX2 with a NAS drive controlled via tablet or computer and I was utterly blown away when I heard the NDX. BUT, I can't spend the thick end of £5500+. Also - my laptop is a works one and I am unable to load the streaming software. I have a Samsung S9 phone but that's not ideal. I'm thinking maybe a cheapo tablet just to have the software on as a dedicated controller?
I probably won't be streaming off the internet per se, I think it will mainly be ripping my CD's to create a library.
I'll most likely trade-in my CDX2 but being 12 years old it won't be worth much, it's then about what is best to look as a source and what is the best-performing streaming software which is easy to use as I am a complete novice and a bit of a technophobe. I really like the idea of a one-box solution but is the trad separates approach with NAS drive the best way forward?
Any guidance (even if to say "save your pennies for the NDX Jonners) is much appreciated!
