Thanks, but mediafiles and burned CD's aren't my cup of tea. As a collector I need the original CD's ;-)
I wondered about that. Whether you were collecting music or pretty cases. I buy CDs so that I can get uncompressed music and have an archive copy, but I listen to everything on computer or phone, and don't care about the box. Your mileage obviously varies.
Heh. I have a friend that collects vintage video games. I tried telling him that he could just get an emulator, but he said "It's not the same".
He went to some yard sales with me recently and picked up an old Sony TV for free just so he could play Duck Hunt.
Back on topic though, why CD's? If you're going to collect, why not vinyl?
