How to archive CD's onto disk?
I'm a new proud owner of an A2, and this question is related to that.
I currently have my CD's loaded in a Pioneer 400 disk carousel. I just purchased disk 400. i really don't want to get another carousel for my future CD purchases.
is there a product out there that would allow me to burn the CD's onto something like .wav files so the electronic copy would be identical in every way to the CD, have a digital or analog audio output into my home theater pre-amp, and allow me to play slections through my home AV system just as if they were the real CD's?
Not sure I'm looking for a full-blown media center PC, as I just want to do this with my CD collection.
anyone have experience with this?

Format: FLAC (or WavePack maybe, but...)
Other equipment: decent sound card.
Oh, and I must shamelessly plug Foobar2000 while I'm at it . There are none higher for music players. From that, start Googling! There are several good guides on getting the ripping set up, and and the audio output part shouldn't be a real problem.
You can't play them from a normal stereo system like the CDs without something else ($$$) to interface to your music. If you're up for such a piece of equipment, you can't do much better than a Slim Devices Squeezebox. It needs the PC for the library, and connects through a wireless network or just a plain old wired one (recommended).
