If the existing Vortexbox isn't working properly but you need auto-rip, auto conversion then I'd buy a second hand small form factor low power PC with CD and install Vortexbox from ISO.
Unfortunately the Vortexbox forums are down so the lack of perceived support maybe an off putting factor.
The basic 2.4 install runs 7.8.1 but it is easy to move it to the 7.9 nightly path.
It is also fairly easy to hack the config files around to get the CD ripping as you want.
Personally I still use an old PC in this mode but it has been hacked to have storage on a NAS via NFS - an unnecessary step here.
I do agree with Jeff that cover art is a bit hit & miss but that is easily resolved.
There is plenty of support here.Vortexbox LMS 7.9 music on QNAP TS419p via NFS iThingys/iPeng/Tablets
