Ask Engadget: best music player and service to start fresh?


We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, then here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is from Sarah, who has a clean slate to begin using music services and wants a device to help her along. If you're looking to ask one of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

"Hello! Long story very short, I don't own any CDs anymore, or HiFi gear, and all I'm doing for music is playing the odd track on YouTube and listening to 6Music. I'd really like some sort of HiFi that I could just hook up to Spotify without having to sit in front of a computer to pick out tracks. Is there anything that exists that could help me? Thanks!"

If we're honest, we're not sure the device you describe exists, but there is a reasonably useful (albeit expensive) alternative. For instance, Spotify Connect is now available on a fair few pieces of audio gear, so all you'd need then is to grab a mobile device (cheapie tablet, for instance) as a controller. That's as far as our thinking goes, so perhaps now we can turn this one over to the Engadgeteers in the hope that they can suggest something better.
