Has anyone bought a Portable High Res player yet?
« on: July 09, 2018, 09:43AM »
So I am seriously contemplating a portable FLAC player.
Anyone else do this yet?
Lots of choices, price all over the place!

I looked into it and yes prices could be insane.

What I did was I bought one of those cheap cloud nas drive.  I disabled all the cloud stuff and use it as a nas drive only.  Then I got the latest Roku which I use for streaming videos.  It has a flac player built in. The Roku finds the nas drive and my shared music folder and it plays it.

For less than $200

That sounds like an excellent home base kinda solution.
I may try same.
If I want to go "on the road" I need something truly portable.
Looking at Astell &Kern and FiiO. 250.00 to about 1K.
