upgrade to TB3?

Apple TV and Home Theater - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
I am looking at options to upgrade my storage solutions. I have started reading about putting a iTunes library on a NAS like device and since I have a mix of personal and iTunes Store content, I am not sure that it will work, as most NAS solutions seem to create their own folders for media and it could become a pain to set-up. I currently have a late 2012 Mini with 16GB RAM and a 4TB Thunderbolt drive. The Thunderbolt drive is what I am looking to upgrade. The mini's sole purpose is serve up the content and occasionally do some encoding for iTunes. Assuming Apple does something with the Mini it will have USB-C. Other than to have the newest and coolest, is there any reason to wait for A) more Thunderbolt 3 gear and get a future proof storage solution or B) get a large Thunderbolt 2 RAID now.
