Today I have an Auraliti PK90 as my music server. I am already in the process of building a Vortex Box server to act as a ripper / NAS / streamer. For about $600 more dollars I can add a dedicated SSD OS drive, SOtM USB Card, and SOtM filters to the Vortex Box. In this case the Vortex Box could probably do a good job of taking over the work the Auraliti is doing. The biggest hold up I have from this right now is that for me the Vortex Box will not just be dedicated to audio listening. I plan to use it for other topics which I have outlined in my blog here if you want more details: New HTPC and Audio Data Store Solution - Blogs - Computer Audiophile Most of the other functions such as ripping / supporting iTunes streaming would not be going on while I am listening to music. I would even potentially schedule the Crash Plan online backups to run at night. The pros of switching to the Vortex for everything is that I could consolidate one more box, and don't have to mess around with the Auraliti trying to pull from it. Does anyone have any experiencing using a Vortex Box as an audio source where it is also pulling other duties, or has more than just audiophile services running on it?
