Happy to see the CD player is integrated into Volumio proper!

Does anyone know if the upsampling in the playback settings affects CD playback? (I know I can rip it and then it will upsample, but if I don't want to do that...)

Thanks!

Yes, if you enable resampling, this will affect also CD playback.
How do you like the CD playback and ripping function?

Hi, update to the latest version. Then you should have MyVolumio Superstar or Virtuoso account.
Then simply connect a USB CD drive and insert a CD... You'll see the CD option in the browse tab ;)

Hi guys,

thanks for this feature. Do you have some recommendations on the external cd drive? The conventional are quite noisy.
Overall the CD player and ripping is easy and straightforward to use, so thanks that is what I wes looking for.

thanksä

Great to hear. I have used a LG drive, Philips and ASUS. I've had equal experiences with them all.
Why do you say they are noisy? While playing or while ripping?

Hi,

The Nanomesher team (developer of the CD Player plugin) recommends a SONY DRX-S90U, which can be powered directly by the PI, is very silent and does a good job overall.

I also tried the SONY DRX-S77U which is also good, cheaper but requires an extra power supply.

Best Regards
Josef

Only suggestion I can give: it's better to get an externally powered USB CD Drive. The initial start of a CD Drive requires lots of power, which if not provided correctly can result in SD Card corruption on the Raspberry PI.

Hi Mike,

The noise was even while playing cd, but I tried USB Y connector and connected the drive to external power source and its better now. On the other hand those external cd drives were never designed for hifi playback. I'm more than happy to have this feature within one solution and with consistent cd ripping quality of my cd library (re-ripping of all of my cds just started :) ) + integrated auto-tagging of tracks.

Couple of side notes:
While playing CD - you could also add the same track labeling & booklet feature as its implemented while you ripping cd (now just shows Track 1, ...)
CD Ripping - you could add preset for drive target for ripping

I'm thinking to get this:
https://www.amazon.com/VersionTECH-External-Superdrive-Duplicator-Compatible/dp/B01LAC7VVM/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=external+cd+drive&qid=1555515542&s=gateway&sr=8-8
https://www.amazon.com/Electop-USB-Male-Dual-Female/dp/B017OQ26OA/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=USB+2.0+A+Male+To+2+Dual+USB+Female+Jack+Y+Splitter+Hub+Power+Cord+USB+Adapter+Cable&qid=1555515333&s=gateway&sr=8-4

Thanks & keep up with the great work guys.

Can someone tell me what features the cd ripping plugin uses? Has it features comparable to eac and dbpoweramp?
