I have about 250GB of music on a toshiba hard drive. I just bought a SONY STRDH820 receiver. It wont plug straight in with USB. How else can i do this? I have alot of 24 bit vinyl rips and flac files. It would takes ages to put it all on dvd rs an cd rs.

I am a novice so any help would be appreciated.

The Sony reciever can only take Ipods or iphones with mp3s. It will not even recognise my HD.

What streamers will work? How does a DAC work?

According to the manual it supports generic USB devices, Sony MP3 players, Ipods, etc.

Did you read washu's post above yours?

Ipods, iphones etc.

I dont understand his post whatsoever.

I am pretty pissed to be honest. I bought some Monitor audio bronze bx2s with the Sony strdh820 and the sound is not great at all. My Technics all in one hi fi sounded way better and they are 100 quid on ebay.

I only got on sunday so i may take back with the 28 days cut off point to upgrade.

Basically i wont to be able to play my hard drive contents and dvd audios, cds etc. I already have a denon 1920 which plays sacds and dvd audios but this damn amp has no multi channel output. Could i use HDMI for DVDA?

So you just ignored him? No offense, but if someone trys to help you and you ignore them, you're probably not going to get help.

My suggestion would be to reread the post, and then ask questions until you do understand it.

Unless you find information that says this one supports NTFS, it will probably have the same problem as the Sony. In fact, I would not be surprised if none of the available receivers supports NTFS. Please verify which file system your HD uses before proceeding.

A quick search of the manual confirms this. The Onkyo TX-NR509 only supports FAT and FAT32, no NTFS. Your pretty much guaranteed to have the same problem.
