Default home stereo usb music

my yamaha stereo is older and no usb input. im tired of having to have my hdtv on to listen to music from a usb flash drive. what id want is a usb media player. would bee nice to find one that works like my old cd player so i could see what is on it. you know, have a led screen on it. i dont know why they dont make one yet. thats all i listen to my music on anymore, flash drives. i know there are dvd players with usb inputs and the old buy a mp3 player, but seems that a usb player with a fronnt light screen would be just like a old cd player and thats what im trying to find. either that on im going to have to spend $1500.00 for a new yamaha receiver with usb input, and i really dont want to do that. ive also read about bluetooth devices that can connect to your older home stereo and play form your ipod but dont seem to work to well.

Most of your newer Networked Music Players have an app for your smartphone or tablet which allows you to have a graphic interface to select your music.

crutchfield had a sale on the yamaha RX-A1020 so i bought it. it has the usb input but found that i can play music off my iphone to it, also pandora and internet radio and also stream music from my computer to it. the tech has come a long way in the last 10 + years. plus i have all the HDMI inputs, pass-though included with 1080p upscaling. it was worth it. only screwy thing is that if i plug my music flash drive into my samsung smart tv it will play all the music loaded on it, but when i plugged the same flash drive into my yamaha receiver it only recognized some of them. but then theres no need for it anyway.
