I want an mp3 player hard rive not necessarily portable so I can store my entire collection and listen via my hi fi. Thing is I have so many options. Option 1: Dedicated hard Drive Hi Fi Seperate i) Sony HARLH500 80Gb Hard Dive and CD £300 ii) Yamaha CDR-HD1300 8Gb £500 iii) Terratec CAR 4000 £600 Option 2: Portable Hard Drive linked o Hi Fi i) Sony HD Walkman 20Gb £230 ii) Apple iPOD 20 Gb / 40 Gb £210 / £300 iii) Creative Zen Touch 20Gb £170 Option 3: Wireless Network added to computer i) Squuezebox ii) Netgear MP101 iii) Apple iv) Creative Soundblaster Wireless music v) Hauppauge Media MVP Option 4: Multi-Room Audio i) iMERGE S2000 ii) Yamaha MusiCAST £1800 + £600 per room Option 5: Hard Drive Micro System i) JVC NX-HD10R £300 10Gb HD included Options 1 & 2 are favoured, 3 is too much settting up costs and time, 4 is too expensive and 5 not enough space only 10gig, no other sytems on market. Will the quality be as good on portable system as the Sony HARL? Which portable should I go for. Sony fits more on in ATRAC, but Apple has more accessories, Theres just too much to think about. I prefer the look of the Sony, but reviews say the software is rubbish as well, not bothered about downloading form iTunes or anywhere as I only have dial up and havent time to dl stuff, just rip my entire CD collection. Any help for a confused young man - hang on that sounds sexual - it isnt honest, just straight forward technology confusion!
