Hi All,

We're looking at moving cities for a couple of years, and living in an apartment while there.

My current Sooloos system has a QNAP TS-251 NAS in the server rack in the garage, but the apartment of course will need to have the NAS in the living space, therefore I need a silent NAS for the Sooloos system.

QNAP do the HS-251 which is apparently silent. Has anyone used this one for a Sooloos Core and Store?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Jason

I use the 251 and it works fine. I have it in a closet so have never listened for noise.

I'm using the HS-251 and it works really well, I just wish it supported multiple VLANs on a single ethernet port.

If you put SSD's in it, it's absolutely silent and sits beside my Roon player (bear in mind the first QNAP I received had a high pitched whine from somewhere, but its replacement didn't).

MC200 is pretty much silent, I used one in my listening room for years before switching to Roon.

Interesting that you got it to work on an HS-251. I tried it on an HS-251+ and couldn't get it to go; eventually went with a TS-251+, which worked fine.
