Hi everyone. I'm finally going to upgrade my hi-fi and what I'd like to do is use my first gen Intel MB Pro to play files from an external HD. (Due to the size of the library and they'll be ripped at CD quality, not compressed) The MB Pro would be attached by tos-optical to a Musical Fidelity M1 DAC. http://www.hifissimo.com/dac-audio-musical-fidelity-m1-dac-silver-34072-1.html What would be the most elegant way of doing this? Would the external HD have to be bootable? Which would be a chore as it would far less immediate when wanting to play music. Or can I stream in the files from the external HD using iTunes on the macbook? A bit uncertain of how to go ahead and so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
