Newbie - NAS to pre-amp?

I am brand new to this board and not sure if this is the right place for my question.

I have a decent (but old) Hi-Fi system and currently have CD player and turntable feeding into a Lexicon CP-3 Pre-Amp (Sound processor) through Audio-in RCA jacks.

I have ripped my large collection of CD's to MP3 files (about 450 GB) to external drive on PC.

I am envisioning purchasing a NAS drive and driving it using Media Monkey on my Android tablet...

No sure where to go from here....Are there NAS drives with Audio outputs? Or do I need a converter of some sort? I.e. the question is how do I physically connect from NAS drive to the pre-amplifier?

Am I dreaming or is this achievable? Or do I need to finally retire my Lexicon unit and get newer technology preamp? Specific brand recommendations would be appreciated.

Any DLNA capable device would do. However there are NAS devices with HDMI and audio out like: ... 14&event=2
