I'll eventually want to rip all my movies, but for now, I'd be quite happy with just stowing all my CDs.
I want a good quality, reliable, no-hassle component music server. Pop in a CD, let it RIP (getting track names from the net) and you're done. A nicely implemented interface - either through a TV out or a small imbedded screen.
Basically, iPod+cd player in a component package. Escient's MX-111 looks great feature-wise, but at an MSRP of $2k, there's something seriously off.
Are there some options I've missed?
