I am a bit confused about how the Slim Devices Squeezebox works. Does it have its own internal memory or does it rely on a PC to store the music tracks? If it has its own storage, what is the size of this?
I thought that might be the case. I am in the process of digitising a large collection of vinyl and cassettes etc and want to digitally store them along with CD's at varying levels of compression for playback through an audio system. I guess I need a digital jukebox of some description.
Dave, You can run it via a Netgear Readynas Duo external hard disk or similar without having to have your computer on. I've had this set-up for 6 months now and it works fine, albeit slightly slower then when running through a PC. It still beats searching for the CD. The technical support team from Squeezebox are also very good.
I didn't realise the squeezebox could take an external drive. Would any ext hard drive be suitable? Would you recommend a squeezebox/ext hard drive combination over a stand alone digital jukebox? Search speed is not really an issue. Will this combination ultimately be more flexible?
