Is this still available? I think the shopping site is showing it sold out.

This is a question I too have -- about USB drives. Can these players all play music off, say, a 2TB USB hard driver formatted in NTFS? I've often tried to read the specs and descriptions of these players but have been unable to get a clear answer.

Thanks a lot, the link was really interesting.

Going by that page, this device does not clearly say whether it has the current drive needed by its USB port to power a USB hard drive. (Some expensive network players don't.) Secondly, it clearly omits NTFS from its list of file system formats, which means it will not play the vast majority of USB hard drives. FAT16, FAT32, exFAT and vFAT are all formats used by flash drives. Out of these, exFAT allows file systems in excess of 4GB, and is therefore popular with DAP these days with large microSD cards. But NTFS is not in this list, so this player won't be able to play the vast majority of USB hard drives.

There was another page I found in the same website you had given. This one talked about playing files over a network from a PC or NAS. This page removed the 5,000-file restriction, but failed to mention which network protocols are supported. One can only conclude that the Windows SMB protocol will be the only one supported, which will take care of the big majority of users.

In comparison, my open source media player (LibreELEC) running on Raspberry Pi supports NFTS, Linux ext2/ext3/ext4, and all the FAT formats, and doesn't have any 5,000 file restriction, doesn't mind a 600KB artwork image, and can access NAS drives using Windows SMB, Unix NFS, and Apple AFS protocols. Nice. :)

Exactly. This is the reason I skipped this kind kind network player and built my own player having full control with us.

Well said. I find most commercial devices have support only for archaic Windows-origin filesystems like FAT and FAT32, when so much more advanced ones like ext4 have been around for a long time.

Even if we keep aside the differences in the various file system formats, it's necessary that the commonest file system on a USB hard drive must be read by the network DAP. And that file system is the NTFS.

I have a different suspicion about this device which makes the entire file system discussion secondary. I have a suspicion that this device cannot power a USB hard drive. This means that even if I format my USB hard drive into exFAT format, this device may not be able to play it, because the hard drive may not get enough power from the USB port to start spinning.

Many TVs which support media playback from USB dongles have the same two problems: no support for NTFS and not enough power out of the USB port to power up the small USB-powered portable hard drives.

If any owner has been able to play back anything from a USB-powered hard drive through this device, it'll be great to hear from him.

I too have. I run LibreELEC on an RPi 3. I have added a HifiBerry HAT on the Pi to get good audio quality output.

But I miss a device like the Marantz, because it has better ergonomics and a screen. I can't use my RPi player without a TV, because it doesn't have any screen. This Marantz device or its less expensive Pioneer cousin (I forget the model numbers) don't need a TV to let you scroll through your folders and play audio.

The Cambridge Audio CXN (I hope I am getting the model number right) network media player can play USB hard drives and process NTFS. A friend has one, and had taken a copy of my entire music stash on a hard drive, and plays from it. But it's more expensive than this Marantz.
