Looking for a replacement for our Cocktail Audio. All music tracks (around 27,000) are backed up on external hard drive. I feel sure that there is a cheaper system we could use so looking for advice. Criteria is we want a display so it's easy to see what's playing. Any advice? Thanks.
You don't say which model Cocktail Audio you have. Some have amps built in and the price range is pretty wide so don't know what would be cheaper?
A Denon Heos Link ($349) or Amp ($499) has a USB port that your files could play from but they don't have built in displays since a modest tablet would provide a better display that you could leave at your chair. https/usa.denon.com/us/heos/wirelessaudio/amplifier
