If you want to listen to your music the way it was meant to be heard, you're going to need more than just a smartphone plugged into a Hi-Fi sound system. Sony's new Hi-Res Audio players give you 500GB to 1TB (expandable) of storage to hold and play large lossless audio files in virtually any format. The players come in two models with the HAP-Z1ES ($1,999) model boasting 1TB of storage and an Analog FIR filter, low-phase noise liquid crystal oscillator, and large capacity twin transformers while the HAP-S1 ($999) has 500GB of storage and a 2-channel Class AB amplifier. Both can sync with your existing music libraries on your PC and MAC and can be controlled via Sony's Android or iOS remote app.
