I've got a pretty good assortment of components in my home theater... but I'm wondering if a component-style digital media player exists. Why? Because I want to replace my 60-disc CD players with one box to hold all my ripped CDs.
I have an HTPC with all my CDs ripped, but I want something that can be operated independently of that... it's a pain to turn on the tv to control itunes, or the PC is asleep, etc.
Ideally, there would be a little box in my rack that has a hard disk in it. All my music would be there. On the front of the box would be an LCD that shows me my albums, tracks, etc.
Yes, an iPod with dock would do this too. I have too much music for the iPod though (especially in lossless compression).
Does something like this exist?
