    Why do I soon see the RIAA declaring this a "Criminal Accessory to Cursory Piracy" Good idea though.

    Good idea but nothing special. The case is the Nexus Psile which is quite common on the ITX market, so in the end you pay for the software a lot more then i would like to.

    edit: <88> beat me to it :)

    Surely someone can just take a shuttle system, put cheap components into it, create some software that can do it automatically and for 300 quid less? I guess for the less technicle person the idea is a gem but again, most would probably prefer to use there existing pc and some good software that does it all for you anyhoo.

    I think I'm ranting more about the fact that I dont have the money to buy it :(

    Nice idea, but, err, no thanks. They've checked most of the major boxes (automatrice, RAID1 array, NAS), but in the end it just feels like it's spending a lot of money to do someting I can already do, and only a little easier.

    As said above I love the idea but it really is way too expensive. At around half the price it might start being tempting, it's certainly a neat little solution.

    If only they would port Exact Audio Copy to Linux :(
    Until then, my music ripping will continue to be manual
