    Default I've just sold 3000 CDs - and i don't care!!

    Well i've finally done it, i've sold my entire cd collection, something i've been thinking about for awhile. Phoned up Tom Fisher of Rat Records in London and he came all the way up to Scotland to have a look.
    He was impressed with the variety and condition so took the whole lot!! I have everything as flac on the hard drive (backed up of course) and what i don't have can be streamed on spotify as i can't tell the differance between flac and spotify anyway.
    I thought i was going to be upset about letting it go but strangely i don't give a monkey's. Quite liberating actually not being fettered to physical media anymore!!
    Has anyone else done this recently? How did you feel about letting it go? Are you wedded to your physical collection? Could you never let it go?

    I use Spotify too Iain and I'm quite happy with it . I have around 500 CDs in plastic boxes in the loft ( taking up room ) . I will probably sell them soon

    If you ever get round to selling them Brian i recommend Tom at Rat Records. What a brilliant guy, really friendly and pays a fair price. He has a daughter at Glasgow Uni so is always up in our neck of the woods.

    No I'm happy with the sound, I suppose I miss not using an actual disc, this is the second time I've had a file based set up, and i seem to end up listening a lot less

    I'm the opposite. CD bought, CD ripped, CD never played again. I find it interesting that there will always be people that find putting something physical on as part of the whole experiance.
