Maybe an obvious question.... If I put a CD in the drive of my Slim server
PC, can I stream the CD directly without having to rip it?

not currently. I dont believe there are any plans to support this directly.
There is a feature request to support pc audio line input, which would likely
allow this kind of thing indirectly.

However, the point of slimserver to replace the need for cd's and cd players by
streaming audio files stored on your server. When this has been asked before,
the usual reasponse has been why are you still using cds? ;)

On occasion a friend will stop by with a CD that we'll want to listen to, and since its not entirely appropriate for me to ask to rip it before we can enjoy it, I slip it into the CD player and we listen that way. Being able to stream directly from my PC's CD-ROM would make things a little easier, and would remove the need to have a CD player in my system entirely.
