So I'd like to build a quality, but cheap, PC which will only be used to rip CDs and play FLAC through J.River.

I'd like it to be fanless, quiet, and good quality. I'm a bit skeptical of the C.A.P.S. systems over at computeraudiophile.com, though I would be happy to hear that those are a good deal and worth the investment. I already have a Juli@ soundcard, which I could integrate into the PC, or not. I would fine outputting USB or optical.

I'd look into the latest generation on Mini PCs. Gigabyte Brix, Intel NUC, etc. External CD drive for ripping (some of this has already been suggested). Some builds won't be fanless, but they'll usually be sufficiently quiet under low load such as music playback.
