We've been watching eBay and Audiogon for something to replace our Denon DVM-4800 DVD-Audio changer that was destroyed by UPS on its way back from repair. eBay reveals only a battered Denon 2845 that otherwise might fit the bill. It seems these things have all been discontinued, and used is the only way to go. Anyone have an idea about any other place to scour?

Thanks!

rip your collection to hard drive and stream the whole thing. Forget about a transport.

Sounds like a great retirement project (not there yet!)

It takes about 5 minutes to rip and a couple of minutes to tag the files with metadata. About 7 minutes total per disc. If you decided to purchase a few extra DVD players at about $15 each, that would allow parallel operation and even better throughput

Hi,

The easiest method to ripping dvd-audio discs is to first download either DVD-Audio Explorer or DVD Audio Extractor. Explorer has not been updated since 2008, but works just fine and is free. The other program costs 32.50 after a 30 day full trial. You can then rip to your hearts content with either tool.
