About a year ago I purchased f the following:
Sugden A21-SE Amplifier and Matching CD.
I am now looking to bring my system into the 21st century and clear some space in my lounge! What I would like therefore is some form of digital music store to complement the above. Ie. Something I can rip my CD's to which will store those CD's in a lossless (Not MP3) form. This CD store would be a self contained unit with plenty of storage available. I am not looking for a PC media streamer, in fact I don't want it to be PC based. I don't mind having to connect the unit up to a PC for initial loading, but I do not want it to require a PC to be on to use it.
The goal here is to be able to transfer my CD collection to an electronic format of the highest possible quality which will complement the Sugden.
It has been sugested that an Ecient Fireball with seperate DAC would be a good option. Has any one any experience of this unit how would you rate it. What other options are available to me.
I am looking for Medium/High end kit which is going to give me equivalent sound quality to my Sugden CD player.
Thanks in advance
