Easily expandable and quiet NAS

Hey guys!
Watched several “cheap nas builds” with Wendel’s guidance on youtube and I’m thinking of getting a NetApp disk shelf with cheap drives preinstalled to get me up and going. Which drive shelves are compatible with +2TB drives? And what LSI controller shall I use?

Controller and disk support by model are both listed on that page. I have no experience with NetApp disk shelves. I just have an LSI 9211-8i and an LSI 9207-8i (newer version despite lower number) both flashed to IT mode and put into tower cases with SFF-8087 to SATA forward breakout cables.
