Submission + - Linux-powered CD Player Seeks Audio Perfection (linuxgizmos.com)

DeviceGuru writes: A new high-end CD player uses an embedded Linux computer to extract near-perfect audio from garden-variety CDs. Using a CD-ROM drive to read the disc, the device inputs sectors at 4x normal speed, giving it time to detect and eliminate disc errors before outputting the audio. Each sector is read at least twice, with the resulting data buffered in RAM, until no bit errors are detected. The process nearly always results in error-free data, claims Parasound, which manufactures the $4,500 device.
