Is there any CD or DVD player that has a USB plug, that also plays .flac files?
Kind of like Philips DVP59923/37 or DVP5960/37

I'm probably asking too much from a music player though. I'd rather not get a home theater PC, or some sort of networked multimedia stereo player.

I found Philips DVD players to be the most robust and clear when playing avi or mpeg sources through USB or burned DVD. They're awesome...

A dedicated music PC would be best for me, but it does require a bit of investment and setup.
Another route is an Ipod. You can use rockbox firmware on your Ipod to play FLAC files. Then you could attach the ipod to your receiver with a dock or a 3.5mm to rca stereo cable.
Can't think of anything else that would allow you to play FLAC files on your home speakers

Flac is equal to the raw audio file that was used to create it, it supports up to 8 channels and a incredible variety of bitrate/khz It allows for true bit for bit copy of audio files while consuming half the space.

I use a 250gig hard disk drive plugged into the USB port on my Onkyo TX-NR906 the music sounds incredible, specially my 96/24 rips the clarity is incredible, cds are limited to 44.1/16.

of course a audio file is only as good as its speakers, amp, cables, sub, dac, and reciever.

P.S. The onkyo 906 supports flac natively!

Ziova, a company in Australia, makes players that play flac. and other files from disks, drives, and usb (their players are available internationally). They have a website which I'm not allowed to list, but it's very simple and similar to Ziova, but I haven't checked them out recently. If you find yourself interested, check out their forums before you decide to buy anything.

I haven't tried but I will. I know they're playable when on a USB "plug" and hard disk both directly attached and over a network.

I have the Oppo 93 and it indeed plays .flac discs. I usually play them from a USB hard disk or memory stick however. The 93 is a nice versatile player that pretty much does it all.
