The most important thing about this is regardless of whether its CD or your computer or whatever medium of preference its all about preserving and backing up your priceless and valuable music treasures i think its safe to say we all have paid Good money as well as searched long and wide not to mention work very hard for what we now have in our collections and knowing how it would be very hard or impossible to replace them if they were lost. It only makes sense.. in my opinion.While I don't burn CDs anymore, I do want to do some high-res needledrops of some of the rarer albums in my collection. Or in some cases, I have 180 gram vinyl versions of some favorite albums that totally wipe the floor with any digital version out there (like the AAA 2-LP 45RPM Peter Gunn set I picked up a month or two ago, my most recent needledrop). They convert nicely to digital, although they lose a little "something" in the process. Still, if I want to take that version in the car, or share it, or play it back on my desktop system, it's there. I still primarily play the vinyl if I am using my main system, but there are times I just throw together a playlist and include a needledrop or two among them.
