    Looking for suggestions here. All my CDs are up the loft but I would like to copy them to some sort of NAS\Server that I can connect to from my iPhone. I can then connect the iPhone to various speakers around the house.

    I do this just now with the iPhone but I’ve got limited music on the phone – if I stream from Youtube then I can’t use the phone for anything else which is a PITA.

    Any ideas?

    As a former DJ, I went through the same thing with regards to the move from CD Players to an MP3 player. It meant that I had to "phase shift" my library to MP3 which, so I was told, was against the "law"...yeah whatever.

    Converting CDs to MP3 is easy, but you need software which can tag each track correctly and automatically. I can't remember how I did it back then, but this looks to be along the similar lines I used all those years ago:

    Cheers guys - I'm thinking Plex might be an options. Heard a few people raving about it a while back.
