…but not of the type you are thinking. I need advice.
I have an old Sony component stereo that was great back in the mid-90’s when I bought it but now is antiquated. It had an amplifier, 5 disc CD/DVD changer, and a dual tape deck (which broke long ago). What I’d like to do is upgrade to a DLNA-certified, WiFi-enabled (i.e. built-in), Blu Ray player.
I got a 5 disc changer so that I could throw in lots of music when people came over. Now I want to replace that functionality with a DLNA-certified home NAS. I’ve already settled on a Synology DS110j (USD$150) since they are the Cadillac of that market. (I haven’t ordered it yet though.) This will allow my wife and I to dump our music collections from our respective computers onto a 1TB USB drive that I can attach to this and have it stream to the Blu Ray player and out of the TV. (Not only that, but the NAS aspect will streamline work for both of us since I won’t have to have my main PC turned on for her to grab photos of her models, etc. from her laptop.)
But I still need that Blu Ray player, and I’m having trouble finding one that isn’t discontinued (I had found the Samsung BD-C6500 at USD$190 but that’s no longer sold) and that is getting good reviews. I would love to stay under USD$250 for the price.
