Recently I’ve been re-encoding my CD collection. Before I encoded at 128 bit mp3 and now I’m re-encoding them at 320 bit since I have the hard drive space for it now.
Why did they make the CD jewel cases so fragile? A small drop to the floor and it cracks, shatters and what not so easily. A few of my albums have a cover with a missing hinge. So annoying.
One album uses cardboard cover but a plastic tray. The thing about this particular album is that the hub holder for this tray was so very effective at holding on to the CD that I cracked the brand new CD trying to remove it from the holder; making it pretty much useless. (Sam Roberts Collider Album if you are wondering.) I’m wondering if I should buy another but that sort of rubs me the wrong way.
