"What do you get when you use Linux to combine the freedom of MP3 and the simplicity of a stereo component? The Linux Compressed Digital Audio Transport (LCDAT). The LCDAT is a Linux hardware-based project that abounds in features ranging from optical audio output to ripping and encoding of CD?s. Joseph Mesterhazy, the mind behind the LCDAT, has released the source code under the GNU General Public License (GPL), enabling anyone to modify or submit improvements to the player program. As a result, the LCDAT has evolved from a simple college project into an open standard for Linux based stereo components. MP3.com recently had the opportunity to discuss the project with Mesterhazy."
