    Hi folks,
    I'm planning to buy another external enclosure for music storage and I'd like it with USB 2.0/Ethernet (and eventually with other interfaces) and mainly with builtin iTunes support. Basically I need a good and robust single-bay NAS :) so i can plug it in my router and DAAP-stream the music from there to my bunches of computers running iTunes (or running similar players with DAAP support).

    Basically something like this:

    My previous enclosure is made by the great Macpower brand, it's a Pleiades Usb 2.0 and FW400. They have a Pleiades enclosure with Lan interface but it doesn't support iTunes server (and it needs IDE drives instead of the more recent SATA drives). They have a dual-bay NAS called Taurus LAN that supports iTunes server but it's huge and overfeatured for what i need it for.. surely it's a good investment in the mid-long term but i'd like to search for a good single-bay solution first, if it exists.

    The Taurus LAN i refer to is here:

    Thank for replies dudes :)

    Been using this one! Very good

    I've been using ZyXEL NSA220 for the last few months. Its dual bay but offers good features and very customisable. Link
