If I understand correctly stream-rep as you call it takes real time. Where burn/rip does not. If I wanted to stream-rip a 30hour audible book, it would take, well 30 hours. Probably takes about 15 minutes doing a burn then a rip.
Plus, once you burn it to CD you have an archivial BU, so if you ever loose the MP3 version of it you can just rip the CDs again.
but then wouldnt you need 20 Cds to do 30 hours of Audiobooks?
unless it burns it to the CD as mp3, which is just kinda weird. which is cool, but weird that it would allow you to do that.
