You may connect a USB SSD, USB HDD or flash drive to the CXN (V2) via the USB Media inputs located on the front and rear of the unit for playback. Once connected the following formats are supported: ALAC, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, DSF and DFF containing DSD64 at 2.8224 MHz or DSD128 at 5.6448 MHz, WMA, MP3, AAC, HE AAC, AAC+ and OGG Vorbis.
Note: The EDGE NQ will read large capacity hard drives connected to their USB inputs. However, some larger capacity drives will require you to use their own power supply, as the player's USB port may not supply enough power for the drive to function.
The primary function of the EDGE NQ is as a network music player. The USB ports are intended for convenient connection of USB thumb drives. As such, we cannot guarantee compatibility with all USB HDD’s.
