Back in the day, I digitized all my CD music in 192kps MP3 since storage space was at a premium. At the time, I was running a Creative Nomad Jukebox music player, which had 20GB of storage.

Now, with storage so cheap and digital music players incorporating so many options for uncompressed lossless formats, I’ve been thinking of re-ripping everything to FLAC. I currently run an Onkyo DP-X1A DAP, with two 512MB micro-SD cards for a total of 1TB of storage.

Technology has come a long way, and I’m glad I kept all my CDs. Streaming has its uses, but you simply can’t manipulate the tracks you listen to like you can when using ripping programs like Exact Audio Copy in conjunction with music editing software.

My old truck with a CD player also has an Aux jack... that permits any 3.5mm connection from any device that supports such an analog connection.

But yeah, on long trips, I carry a box of CDs.

SiriusXM or CDs …. Some vinyl inside for nostalgia going back to a simpler time I guess. NPR on terrestrial FM boring as watching paint dry but informative.
