For the transport, because you want to store files on a server or network drive, the Bryston BDP-1 Digital Player would not be a choice, as for the moment, it only supports USB hard drives or flash drives directly connected to the BDP-1's USB ports. I don't know enough about the Auraliti to understand if it's Ethernet port will also let it access network storage for playback, or if it is only used for web browser and remote control devices to control playback, and can only use directly attached USB drives like the Bryston. If you decide to go with a computer device, the Apple Mac Mini equipped with an SSD internal drive and controlled with an iPod Touch or iPad is a quiet, compact possibility. MUSIC SERVER:Mach2 Music Server - $1495(Mac Mini optimized by Mach2 Music w/ 40GB SSD + 320GB USB External Drive for Backup) PLAYER SOFTWARE:Amarra 2.1 Music Player - $699 (Supports 24bit/192KHz files) orAmarra Mini 2.1 Music Player - $299 (Supports 24bit/96KHz files) orPure Music player - $129 (Supports 24bit/384KHz files) REMOTE CONTROL INTERFACE:Apple iPod Touch 8GB - $229 orApple iPad 16GB - $499 Total for Music Server, Software and Remote Control would be to $1853 to $2693 depending upon software and remote choice.

It will be in a dedicated 2-channel room. You can check out my current system I do need to have a physical disc transport as my wife insists that she be able to just pop in a CD (hopefully higher rez too in the future) if she wants to listen to music without me. I am reading up on all the suggestions and thanks for all the information. Keep them coming.
Given the domestic harmony component you might like the new Bryston BDP-1 and BDA-1 combo with the BR-2 remote. The BDP-1 works both from front panel and MPod on an iPod Touch or iPhone.
According to Bryston, the BDP-1 is designed for "hundreds of files, not thousands of files",
as loading large numbers of files can be slow
