    One computer providing audio via headphone or USB connected DAC connected to another running Audiocity or Gold wave or the like. Or just tape it.

    That's an awfully complicated mop (method of procedure) I won't speak to the legality of the concept but if you want to record a stream into a prefect digital copy in a flac, alac or mp3 format anyone can do so on a single computer using a program like Audio Hijack. If your not a mac owner however I'm uncertain of a windows equivalent.

    But again the legality of doing so is the issue, I'd advise against doing so.

    If you use Firefox, there's Ant, which usually does it for video. Should do it for audio, I suppose. I think it works by preserving the existing data in the buffer instead of allowing it to be erased. And I would think Soundflower offers an option too. And maybe Quicktime 7. All for Mac, of course...

    I'm avoiding discussion of copyright, which is an issue one must consider. I'm not aware of streaming capture programs; this procedure uses two stereo wires and a recording program one your choice. I've found it easy to do.

    Easy to do yes. But not as simple as the solution I posted, plus with your method multiple possibilities for signal degradation exist. Using a single computer and the proper program for a bit for bit perfect copy is the way to go.

    Total Recorder is another option for Windows.
    As far as legality is concerned, I believe the Federal law regarding personal taping/recording for personal use, not selling or duplicating, is still in existence and covers this use. It's why tape decks and taping was legal. Different than ripping.The 1992 Audio Home Recording Act AHRA was interpreted to allow for one digital taping for personal use.

    Not since the DMCA came out. Taping radio programs has been illegal. podcasts no, since the person who made the podcast will let you download. So, no it isn't legal any more.
