Rent or buy; stream or play?

I’ve been re-organising things a bit. A lot of ‘old stuff’ went into impromptu storage that I expected to be very temporary and here I am a good few years later… how time flies!

The most fun I’ve had unpacking, has been my CDs – probably about 250 of them covering just about every genre. I use Spotify almost constantly, but it’s never given me the visceral pleasure of looking at the CD covers, replaying some of the tunes in my mind, picturing times and places that I associate with each CD. For two hours I was in music heaven, without actually even playing any of the albums as my hi-fi isn’t hooked up!

Streaming undoubtedly gives me access to much more music for far less money. Is it such a good value experience though? I’m not sure!
