You're absolutely correct, CD's are the way to go, but they aren't the perfect solution either. Most of my collection was bought used and I'm always shopping for new (used) stuff, but it's crazy to see how bad CD's deteriorate. That old stuff from the 80's and 90's, especially the discs with the chrome tops, hold them up to a light source and it's crazy to see how many of them have pinholes, which means there's no longer any music in that hole. And I'm talking about discs that in many cases don't have a scratch on them.

I sense another thread split.....

Confidence numbers have nothing to do with the physical condition of the disc. A pristine disc can have the same confidence number as one with scratches. If you are using confidence numbers to judge which discs to keep and which to replace, then STOP! You are throwing your money away.
