I think you missed my point there. I simply prefer loading a "record" from my collection than do playback from a memory chip... It is a sense of ritual from when I first began playing records ....(I'm talking 78s on a windup portable "gramophone.").
Yep, it's a tough crowd here spinner.
Myself, I also grew up during the start of 33's and 45's, and I understand the desire to hold something in your hand rather than running an app on your smartphone to listen to your music, but you just have to give it a chance I think.
I know it was quite a leap back in the day to accept a digital CD when it was invented, but eventually we saw how much nicer it was than a record. We thought the CD would take us through our lifetimes. Nope, didn't happen - digital files took over so quickly.
I'll tell you, it's actually quite fun to rip all those CD's into digital. It takes time, but it's worth it to reacquaint yourself with all the stuff you own and forgot about. I wasted a lot of time just listening.
I don't have a BDP, but some day I might, as I now just use computers on both my systems to play my digital music. I think you would acclimate rather quickly to a digital library, as it has so many advantages over all that physical medium you like to hold in your hands.
