I have a Sonos Connect coming next week and I am interested in knowing what folks use for ripping CDs to a server. Or do I need a server as opposed to just a hard drive attached to my home wifi network?
I was looking at a Wyred 4 Sound music server. It rips the CD to its internal HDD as soon as you insert one. Is that overkill? I already have an external CD-DVD tray for my laptop. I can rip CDs today via iTunes to an external HDD. Is that all that Sonos Connect needs?
I like the idea though of a dedicated music server so I don't have to keep my laptop turned on all the time.
As you can probably see, I am new to this. I listen to a lot of LP records but have a huge CD collection that I would like to have on a server or HDD so I can stream it with the Sonos.
Thanks in advance,
