For the record….

May 29th, 2007

Listening to last week’s podcast, I noticed that Dina mentioned I had “like 300” cd’s. Well, it is actually more “like 1300” cd’s, not that I am counting. And yes, they are indeed alphabetized, as there would be no other way to find a cd when I want to listen to something…..

    That’s right – it’s much cooler to sift through containers and containers of CDs all spread out on the floor and in storage containers… all in the hopes that you find the one you’re looking for!

    Women… lol

    What TRUE audio geek hasn’t ripped their entire CD collection to a hard drive and isn’t streaming it to their system by now, anyway?

    Let’s see…..1,300 CD’s at a nice round number of $10.00 each. That’s a lot of shoe purchases Dina has missed out on 😮

    I had about half of it ripped to my old Mac G5, but then I started listening to CD’s on my big rig again, and I realized how much I was missing listening to compressed MP3’s!!! So yes, I am back to the “antiquated” excercise of actually listening to CDs!!

    Now I gotta ask what true audio geek rips to MP3?! Flac or Wave my friend! Oh I spose you could use Apple lossless too in a pinch. Sure, the ripping part is pretty unfun, but you can always pay someone else to do it for you if you trust that sort of thing to someone else (I don’t)…

    If you really need MP3s for an iPod or similar device, you can always rip to a lossless format first, then do a mass conversion to MP3. That’s what I do at least, seeing as drive space is so cheap. I figure in a few years there will be enough drive space on the portable devices that MP3s will no longer be needed even for a large CD collection.

    I definitely recommend one of the lossless formats over WAV. Indistinguishable (just a more efficient way to store the 1s and 0s) and saves about 40% of the space.

    Since I don’t have much going on, maybe Clint can have someone send me a piece of gear to put lossless audio files on for my main rig?

    Seriously Papajin, I really do want to move my tunes library to a lossless digital format, but have yet to find the time or right piece of gear to do it with – meaning a nice piece of gear to play it through my rig on…..

    So sadly, my MP3 library is just in iTunes, for use on my iPod from time to time.
