Instead of adding another wall unit to accommodate your still-growing CD collection, Ripserver can pack all of them into a compact cube.

Gadget Review says the company previously used its super-ripping-powers to help companies rip music. Now they are passing that convenience onto the consumer. Put in your CDs and Ripserver will copy music and artwork.

No computer, monitor or other hardware is needed. However, the Ripserver is also a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device, which means you can share content over your home network.

The Linux-based unit rips in either FLAC and MP3, and has a USB port in case the 500GB ($1,190) or 1TB ($1,390) configurations aren’t enough for your massive music collection.

The Ripserver is available now in black or white.
