    My entire CD collection is ripped to FLAC files on an external hard drive. I’m looking for an easy solution for playing those files at a second home we are building.

    Hi - I hope this is the right forum for this question. I am trying to research and determine if there is any real value to purchasing a dedicated component CD player like the Onkyo C-7030 or Yamaha CD-S300 as opposed to converting my CD's to FLAC or WAV on my computer and then loading them on a...

    Hi all, I'm looking for an inexpensive hardware option to play 7.1 FLAC files. So far I've read that Dune HD players support multichannel FLAC. Has anyone here tried this? Also that some Panasonic bluray players can do this too, but I cannot confirm this by reading the Panasonic documentation.
