My plan was to do something similar. I was going to build a wooden case and enclose the HDD and anything else I would need (powered USB hub) and make a nice clean one box unit. Love DIY!
usb hdd will work great as long as you have powered usb hub. I use old 1TB WD 3.5" external drive, it has it's own power supply and works with Pi without hub but i still use powered usb hub to connect DAC and HDD. With case i wasn't original and got myself http://shop.pimoroni.com/collections/pibow/products/pibow-sleek
btw, low-profile mini-itx cases might be what you're looking for with little modification
I already have an Arduino Uno but I don't know if that can be used as a audio player. I'll have a look at Mini ITX.
Edit: They look quite expensive.
