HD base music advise please


Standard Member
I am looking to buy a HD base multimedia box which will be use with High Quality DAC in Highend Hifi System.

The unit must be able to work without having PC on at the same time and must have a USB input for external hard drive. A raw pass-through of uncompressed PCM audio formats via digital outputs is also very important as I would like it to replace a dedicated cd player.

Any pointers would be so greatful.

best regards and thank you

Mac Mini + Lavry DA 10 DAC. Music ripped to mac mini in apple lossless, use optical out from the mini to the DAC. All effects in itunes switched off and set to 24 bit 96000 hz in the midi setup. Finally itouch/phone with remote app to control itunes library, set up genius playlists etc. Sound quality through high end hifi is fantastic.
