Recommendations : Hard Disk Player With Remote
Hi All, I am considering the switch from CDs to .flac/.mp3 files but I don't want to go down the streaming route. What I would ideally like to get my hands on is a decent quality hard disk player with digital out to feed into my Beresford 7510 and controlled by a remote with a nicely functional GUI. In other words something like the squeezebox duet but with a built in hard disk and minus the reliance on slimserver running somewhere be it on a PC or a NAS. I've looked at things like the Popcorn Hour but I don't need/want all that video circuitry.
I know Naim do one of these for about 4 1/2 k but I'm looking to spend around squeezebox money!
The desired device would support .flac and .mp3 files and ideally show up as a network drive - hardwired or wireless network connection - so that I can move music to it fairly easily. Failing that a USB or firewire interface would be fine.
Thanks in advance.
