Music streamer is what you need. With integrated hard-disk is quite rare, such as Cocktail Audio X10. Most peeps rip to a NAS from Synology, Thecus, Vortexbox etc. and then stream to a player, such as from Sonos, RoomPlayer, Linn, Cyrus, Naim etc.

Just be aware that once you dispose of or sell your original CDs you no longer have the right to use/listen to the content.

I rip to pc, copy to 128gb usb stick as FLAC. Then plug into amp, seagate theatre, kitchen mini hifi, tablet or car. One cheap versatile solution.

RE: cd to ???

I rip everything as FLAC to an external hard drive and then hook it up to my dedicated windows pc, which is connected to a DAC and then to amplifier. I just do not like streaming and don't need it now, so prefer direct connection between pc and hard drive. The same will work when using laptop as transport, or connecting hard drive to any usb enabled streamer/player from CA, Naim, etc depending on your budget.


Alternatively if you don't like hard drives you can use servers with built it cd ripper, like Wyred4Sound Music Server. Olive can do much the same. Options are plenty right now, a lot depends on your budget, preference, system setup, etc.
