so I'm relatively new to computer audio as I'm a vinyl guy for the longest time,but last year i venture into computer audio. i have about 4tb of flac,dsd,dxd music on a desktop hard drive with itsown power supply..i was using my macbook running spotify onto a chord qute dac experimenting for the most part,but now i want to run this hard drive to a server.with the simplicity. my question is I'm looking for a server to match this dac that can read without any problems. i was looking into a bryston bdp1 but have read it has problems reading a hard drive that size and with its own power supply. any recommendation for a server in around 500-800 .any suggestion will be appreciated

QNAP is popular.

The BDP1 should be able to support a 4TB HD as long as it does have an external power supply.

I find that by breaking my music up into genres and having separate folders for each that the BDP-1 works perfectly with two 2TB HD's. In my case I have none larger than about .5 of a TB and I don't know what the magic cut off number is. I can tell you that when it was all one big folder that the BDP-1 failed to recognize it. Hope this helps.
Ken.

Build a real server... NAS, from a cheap, off lease workstation, add your drives (probably more costly than the server!) and install FreeNAS.

As Sasquatch said the QNAP might be a possiblity. I was just reading a review in NOVO magazine on the QNAP. You can view it online here http://novo.press/novo-july-august-2017-digital-issue/
