I have an SR7007 and have been playing FLAC files through it's USB port. My friend bought a SONY High-Res Audio Player (HAP-Z1ES) and is raving about it... It stores just about any type of music file... it has a nice interface... can create playlists etc... It's also about $2,000. I don't think I need something like that but I am curious - is there a similar solution from Marantz?
I want to be able to store my music on a Hard Disk and play directly from the SR7007 rather that use Apple Music or iTunes from a computer (the quality is not as good as direct because of Apple's routers and limitations with Apple TV).
What is a good solution to store FLAC files and connect to my SR7007. I have used iTunes an AppleTV with HomeSharing I think it's called but it's "only" 44Khz.
Can I simply attach a USB HD to my SR7007 and use Marantz's iPad app to control it? I don't think the Marantz iPad app will list the songs on the USB Hard Disk though will it?
Have any of you tried what I am trying to do - Play and store FLAC files on a HD and play directly through the SR7007?
