SPEC-01 case that holds our KODI server

Our current living room KODI server is getting a bit old. We currently have 8TB of storage between 2 x 3TB and a 2TB hard drive. Media is spread across the drives and is starting to get a bit disorganized. Part of the disorganization is because of the age of some of the data. Back when I first started ripping media for what was then called XBMC I used the command line interface program transcode to do a lot of work.

Kodi/XBMC - Audio doesn't play for movies with DTS-HD/DTS (Bluray rips)

KODI displaying some bluray movies

One of the things Santa blessed me with this year was several Bluray movies. And while we have a Bluray drive attached to one of the televisions in the house it's not always the most convenient method of playing movies. Most of the Bluray discs came with the option to download a "digital copy," but copies are often laden with DRM. I like the ability to stream from our Kodi/XBMC box to any device so I ripped several of the discs only to find out that none of the rips had any audio. When I checked the MakeMKV settings it appeared audio was correctly inserted in the stream.
