Some of the stand-alone cd-recorders are *very* good. (Some are pretty bad,
though). If you get one, you should get a professional one so you don't
have to deal with copy protection and "audio only" consumer cds. By far,
the best one on the market is the HHB 850 (runs close to $1000, although I
know a place that was recently selling thme for $850.) The A-D and D-A
converters are excellent and it will burn even really crappy media
reliabily.... I have one and use it in the field with a DAT backup for my
concert masters. I would stay away from the Tascam 5000 like the plague.
The Tascam 700 (a pro-sumer deck) is decent, though and it only costs about
$450. You do need to do a slight modification to disable the consumer

Contact me off list and I can go into much more detail...
