Digital Jukebox

  davecooper 19:44 08 May 2009

Can anyone point me in the direction of a digital jukebox/music storage system to use in a hi fi system. Ideally it would have the facility for an external hard drive and have both an inbuilt CD drive and a USB port for tranferring tracks. The abilty to rip and play music at varying levels of compression up to lossless would also be desireable. In addition I would like a digital output to feed an external D/A converter. Does anything like this exist?

Have a look at this - does everything including freeview TV with hd, jukebox, the lot! Probably more than you want.

Probably not using the right search words. Digital Juke Box gave me just that, juke boxes. However, thanks for the help. It looks like a media centre such as the Pioneer mentioned will be the way to go and I can build my system around that, binning my current digital receiver and DVD player at least.

I have it's junior 120 Gig brother. Very good and has HDMI output you can use as a daisy chain to ither equipment. I use it as a Freeview DVD recorder primarily and have not yet tested it in the jukebox role - it may be worth you downloading the manual to see the detail of this part - it has a USB slot to input MP3. The Pioneer website has other options you may care to look at.

Thanks John, I will have a look at the manual as you suggest.
