    Music Server vs. ripped files on a computer? Sonic benefits?

    As the title says, am I missing something by just using ripped files on my computer as opposed to using a dedicated music server like an Aurender or an Innuos/Zenith? (FYI, I use a Chord DAVE and a Windows PC with external solid state drives for my music storage.) Thanks.
