Dirt cheap storage in EMPTY CD/DVD CAKE BOX SPINDLE -100 DISCS
Zero aestheic pleasure in those small discs, bad artwork and lousy-plastic (was that compulsory? part of the standard?) cases? Easily. Wouldn't miss them at all.

Wouldn't miss them at all. I think it is a "human" thing where any real object (even lousy plastic) that can be hold is automatically given higher value (also monetary) as opposed to some "abstract" stored on disk. That could also be a valid (only?) reason for people to still search for LPs.
Maybe it's my age, but there's still a lingering distrust of computers somewhere in my subconscious. Although the entire collection is ripped to lossless, I've lost a few and given some away, but I have never sold a CD. I still feel that the inventor of the jewel-case deserves some kind of punishment, though.In my younger days, I did sell quite a lot of my LPs, but that was out of financial desperation. Luckily, most of the ones that I sold were awful! The spindle solution is tempting. I might free up quite a lot of space that way.
Now that everyone's ditched their CDs, I miss gawking at their (no longer visible) collections when I visit..
I was at a friends' place a couple of days ago, and an entire wall of his living room is floor to ceiling fully stacked CD shelves. He insists on playing them on his old Technics CD player, he doesn't want to rip them. Probably for the same reason why some people like LPs; when he puts on an album, he always listens to the whole thing, all the way through.
