Keeping it lean.

I have a Kenwood Amp with RCA inputs, Kenwood CD player, Mission speakers.

Iím trying to archive my CD collection to a server in the home, and use the FLAC system (this is all new to me)

I then would like to be able to call up my music library and play whatever.

I admit to being totally confused (i'm not a young fella), and despite trying to glean the information from various sources, I am somewhat bewildered and lost, especially given the amount of differing opinions and whatnot.



After reading many other threads on this forum, I sort of felt that maybe the members here may be able to give me good advice. My first post wasnít allowed, as I may have asked too many questions or included info not required (I apologise). So my other questions I will ask later.

Thank you so much.

PS I don't normally like to just join a site purely to ask questions, but on this subject I have very little I can contribute to I'm afraid.
