    "Budget" DAC with Volume Control?

    Absolute best external CD-ROM/RW for ripping audio CDs?

    Hi! I've recently bought an ipod and wanted to rip all my CDs, but the stock internal CD-ROM I got is not cutting it. Even with error correction and all I still get clicks and noise on certain CDs. So, I'm looking for an external CD-ROM (or rewriteable) or DVD-ROM/RW, to be connected via USB...
