music than thinking I may want to do more conversions later. That is why I spent the
time when I did to find what works best for "me". As a matter of fact, in the
years since I transferred my collection from CD to ogg files I've never said to
myself "I wish I had done things differently". And I've never been tempted
recreate the original CD. :-) Only recently did I replace my CD/DVD drive which had
been broken for about 2 years.
Well, see, I started doing conversions from CD to MP3 (probably at
128Kb) over 20 years ago when hard drives were still measured in MB. :-)
Over the years, hard drives have become larger and I've switched to
ogg and raised the quality level a couple of times. Now hard drives are
large enough that I can go right to flac as the maximum quality and if
there are any new formats or whatever, I can very easily re-encode the
whole collection at once with no difficulty.
