Like Photon, I've got a sizeable stock of LP's.  If started listening to an album a day, it would take me about 10 years to go through the collection.
Now take that away, and I'd simply do a streaming service.

I’m guessing you haven’t moved in quite a while? There definitely isn’t a tiny house in your future.  :lol:

  For me it is all about the music, meaning the recording. If I have it on LP recorded in Analog no need to buy the CD. If the CD was recorded in DSD or digital I do not buy the LP. Not a fan of up sampled Hi - Rez on CD. If recorded in Hi-Rez [ DSD ] and played through a server capable of that  Hi-Rez, hard to beat. Today most vinyl is recorded in Digital so what is the sense. Buy the CD.
  Having a large collection of 10" mono LPs and a Mono Cartridge it allows me to hear those marvelous recordings that are NOT available. My reference digital comes from Blue Coast Records. IMO the best around. Limited selection but man o man are they well recorded.
  Both formats have their advantage and deserve respect. The big question though is " Cost " Which format cost you less for the best quality ??

I've got quite a number of titles in both vinyl and cd (or SACD) that were recorded digitally and I've been quite surprised that there are greater differences than one would expect. Often, the comparison is a wash, they're just different and neither is a clear winner. Sometimes, the vinyl is better. I'm hard pressed to think of one time the cd sounded better than vinyl IMO (all this assumes the vinyl is clean and well preserved.)

I'm another that sold his record albums (2001)  because of a move. The records had been in a closet for a few years, pretty much unused. It was time to move them to someone who would listen to them. I kept around 100 of them, some for sentimental reasons, others because they weren't worth selling.

No regrets.
