Here I will talk about my audio equipment set up and the related components. I personally have a pretty basic setup consisting of a tube amplifier, an iPod Dock that has the ablity to extract the audio in the digital domain, and a VortexBox Media Server.
VortexBox Media Server - This is a free media server software that is Linux based and administrated from a web based GUI. It is extremely easy to use and will automatically rip Audio CDs to the internal storage in FLAC format.
