Currently I am using a Sony NWZ-A17 portable music player with 192gb storage connected USB digital out to a Stealth DC-1 DAC. After I purchased the Sony NWZ-A17 I looked hard and long to find anyone using a portable player with a Stealth DC-1 DAC and could not find anyone reporting that it possible anywhere on the internet. I purchases the Stealth DC-1 to find out if it was possible and got lucky. I still wonder if anyone is able to use an ipad, iphone or any of the other mobile devices with Android connected to the Stealth DC-1 DAC with USB. I currently do not need all the features that the Sony NWZ-A17 portable music player includes such as DAC and headphone out. The Sony NWZ-A17 also uses a rechargeable battery and I would prefer a device that would not require recharging and reside permanently with the stand alone music system. The Sony NWZ-A17 performs the task of hard drive, operating system and interface wonderfully and cost $300 dollars. I would think that a stand alone music player as I described above would cost no more or less.
Why not a computer and why a button only interface? My computer with a wireless keyboard does everything you say you want to be able to do and cost the same amount you say is the target?
