I'm looking to get an audio jukebox of some sort, with sound quality being the main sticking point. Current player is a Pioneer DVD757AI that feeds an (on loan) Arcam AV8 via the co-ax (which is better than the analogue outputs). Either the AV8 or something similar will be making a permanent appearance in my system soon, hence the DACs are good quality for any digital input. As I see it, I have a few possible solutions: Audiotron: works out of the box, plays uncompressed WAV files and has optical output to feed the processor. Slimp: no digital output and plays compressed MP3 only, so falls at the first! PC based solution: something like a mini-itx based machine running fanless either using built in digital output (though the Via ones seem to upsample everything to 48kHZ) or add on digital output card - either linux or windows based, with/without hard drive as I see fit (record locally or stream from one of my other machines). Nice and flexible but needs _time_ which I don't have much of at the moment. Would play any of the lossless compressed formats (bonus) plus could have a TV interface or be controlled wirelessly from my TabletPC. Imerge - I could build a stack of my own solutions for that price (probably four!) so unless there's something I'm missing, falls early cos the price is taking the ****. Get a better CD Player and put up with changing the discs manually - what level would I have to spend to get audio replay that would beat any of the above solutions? So, anyone care to comment on comparisons of the above solutions - its obviously a case where I cannot demo the options, so will have to rely on others opinions and a dose of pure luck to make the correct choice.
