    I need info on NAS for iTunes. I have a MacBook Pro 2013 8GB RAM 250GB internal Flash drive. I'll be using the wifi NANO DAC. I don't need a very large HD just about 1TB at most. I have look at I have an old NETGEAR router no usb connections
    Synology America DiskStation 1-Bay Network Attached Storage (DS115J)
    I mistakenly bought a 4TB WD at Best Buy for 125.00 USB3 was hoping I could use it with a
    Kanex Thunderbolt to eSATA + USB 3.0 Adapter for 80 bucks and save some money that way I could make use of my large WD external and it would also be powered.

    So you just want to put the WD 4TB drive you bought on your network, or are looking more for a stand alone package. There are quite a few wireless or network "cloud" type drives out there. I've been using a corsair voyager for a couple years without issue.

    You need NAS capabilities if you want to run some apps or more sophisticated RAID support. or have many users. The Synology unit you referenced will work well.

    1TB in a wireless enclosure is about $130 now days
