It kind of scares me to be honest - the fact that it's gathering so much audio data...but I don't think that would put me off buying one.

Yep, pretty much on the nose there.

I was recently given an Alexa Dot which I managed to setup no problem.

I do not have Amazon music or spotify or anything but I do have my NAS with music on it on the same network as the Dot, can I tell the Dot to stream mp3s from my NAS?
Also my bluray player is on the same network and I can stream MP3s, pics and vids from my NAS to my TV, is there anyway to get the Dot to do this for me?

I am really struggling to find a use for the Dot out of the box.

Any ideas welcomed

You can stop looking I found it.
