I must be deaf as well, as 128-bit mp3s or oggs sound just fine to me.
:-) Ripping your CDs to one big archive on the HD would certainly give
you a larger potential playlist, and be cheaper (and more space
efficent) than several CD-ROM drives.
Check into mod_mp3 for apache. I've not used it myself yet, but keep
meaning to. It lets you stream mp3 audio out over http to xmms, winamp,
or anything else that can accept audio feeds over the net. Advantages:
You don't need to put your really nice speakers into your crappy old
box, you can stream to any system in your own network (or over the net
if you wanted), and it's cool. :-) As I said, though, I've not yet
gotten around to setting it up, so I can't speak from experience on the
quality, just the design/intent.
