Gadget for car to play FLAC and DSD files

Hi there

I've been trying to find a solution to listen to my FLAC and DSD collection in my car through AUX without the need of using a mobile phone.

Currently I've a Galaxy S8+ paired to Oppo HA2-SE DAC through micro-usb to Type C OTG and then DAC connected through AUX to car.

I've a paid Onkyo HF player app to play my FLAC and DSD collection stored on the memory card of my phone. (128GB)

Questions
1) is there a gadget that can combine all above mentioned that I can FIT IT and FORGET IT to my AUX or USB of car.
2) what alternative solutions do I have for not connecting and disconnecting every time.

Appreciate your feedback.

Paul

I've never found the environment of a car good enough to worry about my hi-rez flac files being played in my car (2014 BMW-328 which is fairly quiet). I use XLD to convert all my files to a format that can be played by the car on a USB drive. I needed a consistent format for my car and my wife's 2016 forrester. I chose 320 kb AAC. XLD does all the necessary file conversions. (My BMW will play flac, but my wife's subaru won't) I can also play off our phones, but like the USB drive permanently plugged in as the best solution. I have two 64 GB usb drives I bought on sale for like 12 bucks for both of them. I can store almost everything I'd ever want to listen to out of our vast CD and high rez flac collection in that format, so I basically have all my music in the car. One caveat is I have to rip the CD layer of SACD to have those files available in the car.

For the most part, I listen to XM radio, and use the USB drive rarely.

I'm looking into to buy a same model/year BMW, so it can play 16/44.1 flacs as you say via the USb port, how big of a drive will it recognize though as my current drive in my current car is 128gb. Also what format the drive has to be, or if that matters. Thanks.

I don't really know. I use a 64 gb drive which is about 120 cds at full resolution. I use slightly compressed via usb, 320 kb, so I could have a few hundred cds via usb drive at 64 gb. I've found that to be enough of a collection for the car. Plus the BMW has a built in hard drive at your disposal as well. 12 GB is allocated to music. You can load it up straight from the usb drive. You can also rip a cd to the cars hard drive while playing it, however its sounds rough at a very highly compressed level so I wouldn't recommend ripping in the car.

I use an AGPtek Rocker with a 120g SB card. Supports FLAC. It is made cheap but easy to leave in car and play through AUX. Sold on Amazon.
