I am looking for a receiver that allows me to hook up a hard drive with my music. Something that has a readout so I can select the artist or song or whatever. I have a TON of music so if something chugs along (you know, takes 5 minutes to get from artist A to artist R) that really won't be useful for me. If such a thing exists I haven't been able to find it. Would rather plug in my hard drive to the receiver directly, bypassing an iPod to use as the music/artist/song selector, using the receiver itself.
A couple points:
I don't want to stream from a computer.
I'm only interested in audio, not video.
If something exists that I can hook into my current stereo ala a CD player that allows a hard drive to hook up and use as a music/artist/song selector that would be great as well.
Thanks for any input!
