    I don't really have that option, but I'm not too concerned with maximizing my income from this. I'm mostly concerned with not having to store them any longer (spurred somewhat by moving recently and having had to move two huge, useless boxes of them).

    did you keep digital copies of the CDs you sold?

    I'm thinking of the doing the same thing, though I haven't ripped mine yet. (I don't want to pack and move several boxes of CDs that I never play either).

    We should see if Greg would let us crash one of his vinyl pop-ups with CDs too, or something, heh.

    Edit: I think I'd keep digital copies of everything I'm intending to replace with vinyl when possible. That's not really legal, but it feels ethical enough to me.

    I already had everything digitized on my external, but yes, I did copy everything prior to selling it.

    I sold all my CD's (several thousand of them) about ten years ago. I've got all my music (CD's, vinyl, and downloads from various sources) stored on an external hard drive, as well as a series of five 160GB iPods, mainly for listening in the car. One of the best decisions I've ever made.

    The Beta Band - Champion Sounds 12"

    Thanks BritChris. I thought I'd just enjoy it, but truly this record needs to be heard on a huge soundsystem that can handle the gigantic bass sound they went with on these songs. I listened to Dry the Rain at least 5 times today.

    Is the repress out there now, or did you find an original? If so, how much?

    When it came out it was, without a doubt, my favorite Kanye album to that point, and I bought a copy right away. I can't believe the ridiculous prices it goes for now.

    It's the repress. But according to owners of both, they're identical except for the CD being slightly different. I've yet to open mine.

I still want access to the music, I am just tired of the physical storage. if I keep them they will be in a box in the the back of a closet. I've ripped them all. a physical backup is nice to have, but there are much more efficient ways to back it up. the reason I hesitate is that they are the only thing making all those digital files legitimate. though I am not opposed to piracy I tend to try to pay for things that aren't garbage/unreasonably priced/impossible to find. then again, putting a CD back on the market isn't quite the same as never having paid for it in the first place.

    I'm interested in opinions.
    As someone who sold some of his vinyl in the mid/late 90's, I'd urge caution. If you have the space to keep them, keep them. While I think cd's will be easier to re-buy compared to vinyl should you sell them and regret it in the future, why sell if you don't have to ??

    Stores don't pay crap for cd's up here. SF may be different.

    I don't really understand why you'd think CD will make a resurgence as a preferred format. I suspect shaker and I are in the same boat, I haven't actually listened to my CDs in at least 5, maybe 10 years. Storage space is at a premium in SF, and most people don't want to hang on to things they know they'll never use again.

    Yeah, but that doesn't make sense. Why buy two copies of the same exact thing when there are no new songs, new art, new mastering or anything else that might give someone reason to get the reissue?

    looking to buy the Trojan Dub Box Set on vinyl if anyone has or sees out there.

    Selling a few rare britpop and other records not listening to anymore. Crazy to find out that Seventh Tree is going for nearly a hundred now. http://www.ebay.com/sch/ocbolts/m.ht...p2047675.l2562

    to be fair a lot of us didn't expect vinyl to make a resurgence either. as unlikely as it seems that CDs will become useful or desirable again, the future is hard to predict.
