I’m going over to Norn Iron in about 10 days, so a list of stuff for me to do is being drawn up.
The MiL has
- 12 CDs to which she is very attached
- a Bose boombox
- shitty radio reception
- an Audible (talking books) subscription that gets really battered on Kindle tablets
- a good internet connection
The Bose has blown the fuck up.
Audible has stopped working and SiL #2 couldn’t work out why.
This started out as an enquiry from her as to whether the CDs could be ripped.
Short version: I’ve already warped over a Sonos One. It’s pretty simple, pretty resilient, and I can support it remotely. Also the internet radio is great and I can get Craig Charles. Choon!
I think another one will be ordered as soon as she sees what it can do with Audible.
The CDs are the problem.
At home I have a paid license for dbPoweramp. For her’s I will take over a CD drive, but I need software. Something that can find the basics of tags, and rip to flac. And is free. EAC? Anything else?
Storage. This is reall tricky. It needs to be on a Windows share / SMB. There is a PC but it’s rarely on. A full-blown NAS is overkill for 12 CDs. Is there a cloud provider where I can upload stuff and it can pretend to be a local share? Any other ideas?
Thanks in advance.
