XMMS supports digital audio extraction...

  Preferences -> Audio I/O Plugins -> CD Audio Player -> Device -> \
  Play mode -> Digital audio extraction

I've used it in this mode for many years..  If you have good enough headphones 
or speakers you'll notice the lack of EM interference bleeding through the 
little copper connector :)

audio/wmusic is pretty much like wmcdplay I belive (it's been ages since I last 
saw it).  wmusic will let you control XMMS and shows status.
