    Default Music Collection

    So i've been a user of digital music for a some time but recently I've had the urge to start a music collection, since in the future I may lose most of my digital music library (like problems with my hard drive or something). My main problem is to choose between cd and vinyl since what I would be looking for was music that in some point influenced me, during my lifetime. And what I mean by that is mainly albums from 2000 to the present (since i am only 20 years old). I've made some research and saw that getting old vinyls (classics from the Beatles or Pink Floyd) was not that hard, but finding recent albums appeared to be a whole lot harder (and expensive!). In the other hand getting CD's is easier and cheaper, but that "vinyl feeling" kinda disappears. I don't know if I'm making my self clear but nevertheless I hope to get some help !
    Btw, my dad owns a big vinyl collection so the turntable wouldn't be a problem.
    Thanks in advance ;)

    Backup your digital music library. Storage is cheap now a days.

    Wow thanks for the quick response :)
    And yes I know I can backup everything and it's safe, but what I am looking for is in some years from now be able to have a shelf with albums that meant something to me in the past. What I mean is, it's not just about the safety of my music, (and this is going to sound really cheesy) but it's more about the feelings behing it, and be able to look at a cover and remembering the days when I was listening to that album. This may sound stupid but being a music junkie that's something that I thing I am going to miss in the future :p

    That's not cheesy at all. I've been "all digital" for years now, but I still frequently miss the visual and tactile experience of holding an album cover in my hand, reading the liner notes, etc. while listening.

    I will someday (maybe soon) start spinning my vinyl again. The problem there is that my album collection is from the past when my musical tastes were different than they are today.

    Def not cheesy, I have a lot of vinyl that takes me back to that time in my life. No reason to not have vinyl and CD since there will be a lot of modern music that never makes it to vinyl. CDs are fast to rip to digital too so that is handy.

    I actually haven't though about what I will be listening in 10 or 20 years, but I am positive that I'll remember the things that I am listening nowadays (at least some of them). And my point exactly is that those people in their forties or fifties already have that collection that they can revisit every time they want. Nowadays everybody uses digital media (for obvious reasons) so the physical concept of music collection will eventually be lost. I don't know, I guess it would made me proud to show my music collection to my future friends or even family and not just a collection of ones and zeros.
