CD playback?

Had a hard time searching for “cd player” in the forums, so sorry if this has been asked/answered before.

I already have some speakers and amp which I plug my iPod into to play music in my living room. Looking for something that can play CDs and won’t cost a fortune.

Volumeio looks very awesome, but was wondering if I attach a USB external CD drive and insert an audio CD, would it be able to play it?

There is currently a project in this forum which allows you to rip your cds…

Let me know !


I was thinking about taking dcd ( and integrating it into the volumio web UI. I figure it would be pretty simple to just interface with dcd. The hardest part would be detecting when a music CD has been inserted.

The project you posted looks to have figured this out to some extent: … ayer.rules
