    Check out the Brennan B2 device that can hold music from 5,000 CDs and play radio stations, CDs, and much more



    B2 Home Page

    B2 uses FLAC compression that's a lossless compression technique so B2 stores an exact copy of what is on the CD.

    2Tb model can store 5000 CDs as FLAC - perfect unadulterated copies of your CDs forever.

    Find music quickly - just a few seconds to search for a track. Or simply scroll through albums using the volume knob.

    If you want utter simplicity - the Next button turns B2 on and plays your music at random - don’t like what it plays just press again - music as simple as an electric kettle.

    Listen to your favourite radio station - via the internet - now over 38,000 stations - so you can listen to New Orleans in Cambridge or BBC Radio Four in Spain.

    Yeah. The 500Gb model is about $500 and the 2Tb model runs close to $700.

    I never actually learned to play very well
    I’m interested. Thanks for sharing.

  5. You can buy a computer that'll do all that and more for the same price, if not cheaper.

    I have old laptops&desktops I wouldn't use for any real computing job that can do all that. Admittedly most would need a hard disk upgrade to manage the "5000 CDs" part, but that's cheap and the laptop or desktop is for all intents and purposes free, having passed "particularly useful for most general computing jobs" some time ago through obsolescence. Alternatively, you could put $500 into a new computer and it could do all that *and more!*

    Indeed, my current jukebox is a 12 year old laptop with a dead screen that still runs and I can still remote into. Only 500-600 CDs on it yet, as I actually buy them, rather than being one of the charming folks who complains about the music industry not paying artists and then rips CDs from the library or even less savory sources. Couple of hundred records I still need to get through at some point, though... I was that close to buying two chainable 200 CD jukeboxes, but I realized that they would not be enough room anyway, and likely would have failed by now as complex electromechanical beasties do.

    The all-in-one-small-box part has value (to me anyway) as a convenience.
     
  8. I was hoping this was more of a portable player.
    Not needed at home by me. Not at even half the price. Less than $150, then I might be interested.
