    The head unit I want today would have a dock for a removable solid state drive.

    A lot of head units today can run off of an external SSD. Alpine doesn't but Kenwood does. That's why I've chosen the Kenwood KIV701 for when I upgrade. People on DIYMA run upwards of 250gb FLAC or WAV files which is what I want to do once I get everything together because I know my iPod will sound like complete shit when I get my Hertz in with its MP3's

    Around $26,000 worth of unleaded in the fuel tank.
    USB will do that, but it's not all about just music storage, it's about the way it decodes the music for sound quality. And raw file storage doesn't ensure that you can play different formats like FLAC; that's done by the head unit.

    FLAC music files preserve a lot of the track's quality. It' just too bad that many of the FLAC players don't have much storage.

    I may be wrong here but couldn't you just upload your music to the ssd as a flac file assuming that your ssd is compatible.
