If your soundcard cannot to that (from Lee's post I understand some
can), you could also use cdparanoia to get the audio from the cd,
with a fifo in between.

I just tried:

  $ mkfifo cdout
  $ cdparanoia 1 cdout

and in another terminal window

  $ aplay cdout

This works fine.
Now, I think darkice can not read from anything that is not an alsa
or oss device... But I know ices2 can read from the stdin, so

  $ cat cdout | ices2 your_stdin_conf.xml

should work fine. (But ices2 is ogg-only)

I suppose hacking stdin input in darkice would be easy..
