Interesting product. Focusing on your system crash makes me think this first iteration lacks processing power for it's operating system. I too have considerable media on file. Choking while parsing an index of files shouldn't be happening in today's computing climate. The quirks you experienced are all about processing power, memory and of course system software (or firmware for the literal minded).
The notion that I should divvy up my multi tera media library and spread it around in a collection of smaller usb drives makes things harder and more confusing not easier and more fun.
Never mind having an bunch of expensive fragile hi end thumb drives sticking out the back of a bunch of speakers scattered around the room. I wonder how pretty that would be.
Denon, better chips,and better programing please.
