I have an external hard drive connected to my wifi router. I had planned on using my laptop to stream FLAC files on wifi to a separate DAC using Foobar 2000 as my player. As I've gotten more excited about the possibilities, and I come to realize how much I might really be using this, it's come to me that I don't want to sacrifice my laptop. I'm considering getting a cheap ($100ish) Windows tablet to act in place of the laptop, but I'm not sure if that will work?? I've researched options but I'm more confused than enlightened. I'm hoping maybe this one is workable.
