    Rip with a RPi 400?

    My trusty old desktop kicked the bucket and I don’t have much use for one nowadays other than for ripping CDs. Would something like this be sufficient for ripping combined with an external disk reader and then out to a USB hard drive? https://www.amazon.com/Raspberry-400...s%2C104&sr=8-3
    If the hardware is capable would I be able to use EAC by utilizing an emulation layer (WINE) or is that going to be too much for the lil guy to handle?

    Or does it just make a lot more sense to go with something like this:



    I know very little about Linux and it’s been a while since I’ve ripped any CDs so I forgot that I use other Windows based SW to apply Replay Gain and managing/tagging the library

      To the best of my (always limited) knowledge, Wine will not work on a Raspberry Pi, because the Pi is based on an Arm processor, not X86. I see someone is working on an Arm version of Wine, but I haven't found a version of EAC for Arm, so that may not help. There are CD rippers for Linux that should work fine with the setup you describe, but you will have to decide if any of then would be acceptable as a substitute for EAC.
      Usually running latest beta LMS nightly on Raspberry Pi OS with virtual players (Squeezelite and Airplay bridge). Occasionally using SB Radio, Boom or Classic.

        Probably the easier way to go, unless you are interested in learning about Linux. Just for what it's worth, Linux also offers software options for tagging and Replay Gain. But learning a new OS and new software all at the same time will probably be frustrating at times, even though it's very satisfying in the long run.

            I'm also of limited linux ability but I think that Wine is possible on a raspberry pi OS, there are a few to choose from. One has to install a x86 emulator

            Wine allows Raspberry Pi users to install and run Windows applications easily. This article is a complete guide on installation of Wine on Raspberry Pi.


            I have never tried it me sen though

              That's quite a find! I'll be very interested if anyone gets this to work well enough to be usable.
