Cory Doctorow ( @pluralistic ) has a great thread that covers most of why I won't use digital music services, streaming or otherwise, and instead still buy CDs and rip them myself. https://mamot.fr/@pluralistic/108516700101259075
And I keep them. (I do discard the cases.) One day my kids will be looking at 8 fat CD albums weighing 20 pounds each and wondering what in the hell they are gonna do with them.
But it does mean I have a backup to my backups. Plus I can re-rip to a better format if I ever get the time.
