With EAC after you put the cd in hit ALT G. It will grab the album art and track titles. You can try it free for ten cds then it will ask for a one time fee for $7.99 US I found it to be very accurate.

Honestly, it's never been the same since Logitech bought them out and started applying patches to the server for the fancier versions they developed.


My Squeezebox expired, so now I use an old laptop running Ubuntu and a Squeezebox emulator. I have added a USB sound card as the laptop audio leaves much to be desired.

I have also used a Raspberry Pi for this purpose.

Brilliant!
If you network it, do you know if the Apple/Android remote control apps will work with a Squeezebox emulator?

Although I suppose if you get to that point, there are other options. I just really like my Squeezebox though. So far, it is the only system that I have seen so far that allows you to customize it (with a good bit of effort) to handle a classical library properly.
ie..
Works by Composer
Works by Conductor
Works by Artist/Orchestra
Orchestras by Composer
Conductors by Works
and so on
and so on
and.....
