Default Can anyone recommend a cheap good cdrw recorder

Hello
I have given up trying to record a digital stream on my laptop and am thinking about a cdrw recorder. Has anyone any experience of using one as I thought of recording from the spdif out from my dac onto cdrw then read it with eac and transfer it to hdd.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks

Actually, CD-RW devices are not more to buy.
DVD-RW drives can be bought.

At the moment I stream either from a cambridge audio np30, say on linn classical, or the laptop on spotify or youtube. Both into an m-dac which has a spare optical out If I got a cdrw like a teac cdrw890 recorder that only records audio cds, I think, I could transfer them to my hard drive with eac.
Long way round but digital recording is too complex. I have borrowed a mini disc recorder, Its not too brilliant but neither is the quality from the internet.

If you are streaming why record? I used to burn discs from the library years ago and also from satellite receiver, since I've been streaming I haven't recorded anything, I buy the odd disc of stuff I particularly like for the sake of quality

Which/What Hi-Fi published the URL's of some of the BBC Radio Streams a while ago.
These can be put in JRiver (as an example) and the Stream either Played or Recorded, apparently.
I have yet to get it to work myself though!
The last time I tried, a File of just 216 bits was created which obviously doesn't playback !!

If I sort it I'll post back how.
And if I can find those URL's I'll post those too.

What you need is an USB soundcard with SPDIF (or Toslink) input and can do PCM capture. Somethink like this:

External USB Sound Card Channel 5.1 7.1 Optical Audio Card Adapter Notebook PC
