I have a searchbar that normally gives me my album of choice within 5 key presses. Don't get me wrong I am not lazy but I consider listening to music a relaxing experience and to me getting up, opening a jewel case, bending down, putting a CD in the transport, walking back to my seat sitting down, probably being asked to make a cup of tea whilst I'm up is not relaxing.
Absolutely! Couple of clicks and bosh, glorious hifi quality music.
If I want to change from cheesey 1970s to Thomas Tallis I can either flick to - and click on - the cover or just type 'tal' in the search box and it will home in on Thomas Tallis instantly. Click and it's going. Seconds or less.
The CDs are still safely in their labelled storage boxes and they are gradually being moved to a dark, cool, dry, cupboard under the stairs. This - on top of my regular system backup regime - ensures I will always have my music secure. (Even a copy offsite as I mentioned earlier.) The backups occupy drives smaller than a *** packet and take up about 10 minutes a week. They would be done anyway. Music or not.
