What do you do with your CDs collection??

Post by soh choon wee » Fri Mar 03, 2017 12:48 am

For the older generations who started collecting CDs since 1980s, they must have tens of thousands CDs in their collection. Yes, and also VCDs, LDs, LPs or DVDs...... (don't forget our beloved printed scores).

It comes to a time that they occupy too much space...... i roughly make an inventory check, i have nearly 100,000 CDs......

I have some idea (but it will be horribly needing a lot of time) to digitized and keep in storage media.

Yet, what could i do with the physical copies of CDs ????? After digitizing them, do you discard them away?

And, in digitizing the CDs, what do you do with the booklets??? Do you also scan them (and more time needed)..... I wasn't like 1970s when i purchased LPs, i would carefully read the notes (which provides lots of education)..... nowadays, the documentation of CDs are not as good (i am not sure if i am biased).

There is always a fear that the digitized media (even FLAC or LOSLESS) may corrupt, or disappear into obscurity..... unlike actual physical CDs, when they are on the shelves, they get some attention.....
