Hi there I am interested in buying a NAS device on which to transfer my CDs to play via my Moment. Any suggestions please on which NAS would be suitable and not cost the earth. Thanks. Bill.

I use a Synology NAS and using the built in DLNA server. The majority of the cost are the disk size you want to use.

I use a PC dedicated as server ("to fast" processor, "excessive" memory, but cheaper).

DLNA server: Minimserver

2 bay NAS from Seagate works perfectly well for me. Around £350 with disks.

I use a QNAP 251, with their own music server feeding the Moment.

Been pretty impressed actually - no issues, and their web GUI is very decent.

Around 270 GBP on Amazon.

I'm using a Raspberry Pi set up with Twonky Server, which was pretty easy to do using these instructions from Weebyx.   If you have never dealt with Linux and aren't comfortable with command-line work on a computer, it may be a bit much.

Cost was $70 USD for a Raspberry Pi starter kit (R-Pi, SD card, case, power supply) plus $5 for a USB HDD carrier to hold an SSD I already owned as a spare.  If you got your Moment new from a dealer you should already have a Twonky license; I got my Moment used so needed to buy the Twonky license for another $20.

I haven't actually measured the power consumption, but one reason I went for the Raspberry Pi and SSD was the minimal power draw when idle.
