Ripfactory Ripserver

Ripserver is an high quality CD conversion system for converting your favorite audio CD's to the vast libary. Some manufacturer info:

By utilising the core Ripstation technology for high quality CD conversion in a truly hands off way, operation is simple - once Ripserver is plugged into a network connection it takes care of storage of up to 1TB of music files, integrates a UPnP media server and a fully automated ripping system.

In use, no monitor or keyboard is required - simply insert a CD into the slot loading drive and the CD is converted within a few minutes, added to the media library and available on a network share, and then gently ejected.

Ripserver runs on an embedded Linux operating platform to ensure stability and requires minimal setup via a simple web browser interface.

Storage is available in 500GB or 1TB capacities (1TB = 10,000 albums in MP3 or 2,500 in FLAC) with full RAID protection, whilst quality ripping is assured via Ripsure for secure rip modes in both FLAC and MP3, along with quality metadata including cover artwork for each CD.

Ripserver includes both Twonkymedia and Slimserver for media serving to any network connected audio device and full DAAP support for streaming to itunes

Whilst Ripserver only needs a single network point for its gigabit network interface, it provides USB connections for expandability and secondary backup to allow additional storage to be added at any stage.
