Hi Res DAP for Home Hifi System as well as portable audio

Hi all, I hope someone can point me in the right direction with this query. Been searching online for 2 days and cant seem to find the answer

I'm hoping to find a good quality Hi Res audio player (24/192) that can serve a dual purpose
1. As a portable music player where I have a limited number of albums for using on the road
2. And as a DAC essentially where it streams music to my home Hifi receiver to listen over the speakers

Most all of the DAPs available can serve both these functions, but I cant seem to find one that can do the following
Decode and stream from an external 3.5 inch HDD

My entire music collection amounts to over 3TB of data which I have on an external HDD. I'm looking for something that can decode and stream that directly to the Receiver (over USB) - not from its internal SD card

Does such a thing exist...? All the DAPs seem to have SD storage options, dual SD, different capacities, but I cant seem to find confirmation that this feature is possible
I dont need the DAP to power the HDD over USB, since its a 3.5 inch HDD, it has its own power

Thanks
