If you are good with a PC , there is no better than Jriver Mediacenter .I would rip in uncompressed .wav.
Jriver gives you literally all options or format types for ripping and playing.
It gives you album art ,lets you categorize , make playlists sort ot search by Genre , artist , etc.etc.
You can tell it where to rip(store ) all of the files and you can use as many drives as you want . I use external USB drives personally . I have a 6Tbyte and a 4Tbyte drive .
I also highly recommend Backblaze or similar to backup all of them.
Well, i just saw that you said you do not want to use pc. JRiver makes it easy though.
dBpoweramp pretty easy.
At least you can tag as you prefer.
Better databases than EAC
You'll need them for classical.
WMP in 10 finally does flac. Run as administrator if it gives you any crapola.
I can't justify getting another box to accomplish what I can already do.
And I highly doubt comparable results at that price point.
I wrote to BluOS and this is what I got back....so I will keep looking.
"Thank you for contacting the BluOS Support Crew.
1) It will not act as a CD player by itself. By itself it is a CD ripper. As you know it can play from the library to connected speakers.
2)Once ripped the artwork would remain intact even if you are transferring the music to an external storage device from the vault."
I’ve ripped seventy disks so far. If the database doesn’t have info then you have the manually input disk/track names. A PIA
Set up on B2 ok. Ripping worked but no CD info until after software updated. Then Bam.
Step one is to get on WIFi then an update and it was off and ripping.
Rip times around 8 minutes.
3-4 stars for using. 5 for value.
