No, the Modi doesn't read files via USB, it connects to a device as a USB audio device (Or via Coax/TOSLink)

Thanks for the reply. My current Cambridge Audio DAC is seen by the Synology app as a USB speaker.
The connections are Synology NAS drive to Cambridge DAC using USB. Wouldn't the Schiit be seen as USB speaker?

Apologies for my questions. I'm fairly new to this. :)

It sounds like your NAS specifically supports USB Audio, in which case it would probably work (but no guarantees)

It certainly does right now. I guess I could try the Schiit, and return it if it doesn't work.

Thanks for the advice. It's appreciated.

Schiit recommends to do so, also mostly every owner around.

Wow I wonder if my FreeNAS setup also supports that.

See my post with thoughts from a few pages back. It went unnoticed because at that time two people were actively discussing something else.

Keeping it on doesn't make sense IMO (see that post for reasoning). I don't keep it on and don't notice a difference when it warms up.

Thank you. I couldn't find a post where Schiit guys recommend the always on thing. Maybe going from idle temperature to operation temperature puts less stress on components, as opposite to go from room temperature to decoding temp? Guess not, but..

Anyway, I'm getting mine on May.
