It seems like this is component that got left in the cold by the manufactuers.
It would seem with lower HDD prices and computer power now, a stand alone version of this would be great for many people......I would love to replace my 200 disc CD jukebox, but right now, nothing compares to it in sound quality and ease of use. I have an iPod dock for my Denon AVR, tried to use USB input on Denon, as well as network audio on it, and nothing works as well as jukebox.
I have a Dell ZinoHD that I bought for the main idea of a music server, but I have yet to find a front-end and control system that is slick and bulletproof.
I would love to stack another black box in my system that has a CD player/burner, a 300+ gig HDD, and the ability to play without firing up the TV, but has a great looking front end if I did want to see album art and track/disc names.
I've seen things you wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
