Hello dear expertise, I sold my marantz cdp, please advice me some digital audio player with usb and rca/3.5mm out. I don't want to turn on my tv while listening music. Digital out is needed to further add a good DAC to increase the audio quality in future. Blue tooth option may be welcome too. My budget is below 15k.

All your requirements seem to be pointing towards allo digione or usbridge devices. Take a look at them. There are detailed threads on these devices on this forum.

Mibox 4k could be a good option at 3500, it has Chromecast built in and you can connect DAC through SPDIF out or USB

Allo digione is a streamer only with a coaxial digital out. You will need an external dac along with it. However if you need one with a dac then Allo Boss or Allo Piano would be a good choice.

As FM @MaSh says, Digione/Sig is a SPDIF transport and will require an out board DAC.
Boss DAC/Player bundle is a nice starter unit (Pi + master DAC with RCA out).
With stock OS options you will get only a limited set of streaming services.
Eg. Volumio only has Spotify (premium) support, no Amazon/Gaana

FabToLab and WareToHouse are resellers in India. You will find latest pricing/availability on their websites.

Please see this thread. There is no remote, but you may use smart phone (or laptop) to operate it.

Really very helpful information, I checked this product on their website, I think it doesn't have digital output for adding a good dac in future, price is below 10k so it's a good option!

It is a streamer/player/DAC bundle. There may ways to add a Digione HAT to it, but I don't know the details.
