Music – How do you store it.
I’ve got about 400 CD’s worth of music stored on a hard drive attached to our router. Our computers can access the music via wi-fi, using itunes. There’s an airport attached to the stereo to stream the music and itunes uses airplay. All the CDs are under a bed somewhere for ‘backup’.Posted 4 years agodannybgoodeSubscriber
I store it on these big black discs – about 12″ across. Fantastic! I have a special needle on a swing arm device that drags across the surface of the said black disc as a motorised turntable spins it round at either 33 1/3 rpm or 45 rpm. I have heard of some such devices that spin at 78 rpm but have yet to find one.
If I have to I use these small silver discs about 8cm across. Not quite as fantastic but I have good machine for extracting the data from the said shiny disc so it’ll do if needs must.

Hi, I’m not particularly “into” music like many seem to be but I seem to have a lot of it on my laptop, I’d like to free up some space and also listen to more of it. Just get a big ipod and plug it into my radio or is that now old tech? What are all these wireless speakers (eg jawbone) about?Posted 4 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber

an ipod is a portable copy of your music collection, you don’t ‘keep’ your music there, its just a way of playing it, you still keep and manage the collection ‘proper’ on a computer, so using one won’t free up space on your laptop.
stick the music library on an external drive if space is tight, but by the same measure a new, bigger drive for the lappy would be cheap and more convenient.Posted 4 years agopaulwilsonmtbMember
Only thing wit the airport is that even if you rip the music as AIFF/lossless, the sound via the airport is a bit ‘lacking’ compared to playing directly via the CD. Hard for me to explain but it’s sort of ‘diuluted’, like if you had beer with 10% water added. Apparently I need to buy a DAC to improve this which is a bit annoying.Posted 4 years ago
