Like many of you, I have my entire CD collection ripped to my PC, along with other music I've acquired through iTunes or Amazon MP3. Of course, this is much more music than will fit on a single iPhone/iPod or other media player. But, it can fit on a MyPassport external hard drive! Now, how can I play that music from my stereo?
What I'm looking for, but having a difficult time finding, is a stereo receiver that can read MP3 files off an external USB hard drive - and isn't limited to, say, a 16GB size of the USB device. Do such devices exist?
I do not want to rely on a computer/laptop needing to serve music to the stereo, which makes this question very different from a related question: How can I play my MP3 files through my stereo system?. Just want to plug in a hard drive to a stereo and have it work.
