I ripped all my CDs to flac in an m4a wrapper with Grip and play them on
my computer with Amarok. However, I also installed Plex Media Server on
my FreeNAS box.  The files are actually on FreeNAS, shared to my
computer via NFS.  I then installed the Plex app on my Roku, so I can
play them using through our home theater system as well.  Currently,
there are about 12,000 tracks.

Disk space is cheap. Rip to a lossless format.

Ripping CDs is incredibly boring.
