My PC does not have an optical drive but I do own an external one .https://www.newegg.com/nurbenn-model-gll-121-cd-rom-drive/p/105-005S-00001?Item=9SIAH197TP2724

Will this do?

USB disk readers are basically as good as SATA ones by and large, I doubt you'd have any issues with this.

Maybe a bit of a silly question...

Any recommendations on what hardware (CD player) and software to listen to CDs on with the best quality?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

In the past you had to connect the cd/dvd unit to the sound card using an analogue or digital audio cable.

Since after Windows 98, Windows is smart enough to read the data from discs digitally as 1s and 0s and play it... also, a lot of audio players support reading the audio tracks.

If you want as perfect as possible, you can use Exact Audio Copy to grab all the audio tracks and automatically encode them to FLAC (lossless quality) or Opus (lossy, but much better than mp3 or aac, at high bitrate it's practically lossless)
