||QNAP -> CAPSv3 Carbon Computer w/Red Wine Audio Black Lightning Power Supply (12V for the computer & 9V for the SOtM tX-USBexp USB card) -> Cardas Clear USB -> NAD M51 -> Balanced Kimber KCAG -> spl Auditor -> Beyer T1.
Software is JRiver Media Center 19 configured for audio only, which is why I chose the Carbon computer. Everything is accessed from my main computer utilizing Remote Desktop. Now I don't get any intermittent clicking nor interference when I surf the web or render/transcode/rip.
What I get is a setup that copies the music file from NAS to the music server (keeping in RAM), which in turn streams the music to the NAD via a clean, dedicated USB card (SOtM tX-USBexp) using NADs' own ASIO USB driver. The CAPS computer's audio card and windows audio services are disabled.
