What Should You Do With Your CD Collection? Buy a Bluesound VAULT 2i
Why buy a Bluesound Vault?
CD’s have been the main way we’ve consumed audio for the past twenty + years and for many of us, they’ve provided us with great quality and flexibility.
In the new world of audio streaming, how do our CD collections fit in? Well, one of the best ways in both fidelity and simplicity is to rip you CD collection onto the VAULT 2i from Bluesound.
This has all the streaming prowess as the multi award winning Bluesound NODE 2i as well as adding a CD drive and 2TB of storage which should be able to take on more than the average CD collection.
So how easy is it to get CD’s onto the drive of the Vault 2i?
Well, it couldn’t be simpler, you simply load in a CD, The Vault 2i checks online to find the information needed to rip the CD including Album artwork and related information and most importantly, how big (in terms of file size) each track should be. Then it will spin the CD until it has a “bit perfect” copy of your CD. Once it’s finished, it pops the CD back out again and you simply load the next one in and you’re off again.
How long does this take?
It depends on the CD and how easy it is to get all the information from the CD but on average between 5-8 minutes. So over the course of the a few evenings, you’d be surprised how many CD’s you’re able to get bit perfect and onto your digital library which is all managed by the BluOS app.
What are the benefits of this?
Having ripped your CD collection onto the VAULT 2i there are many benefits, one of the biggest benefits is that by being ripped bit perfect, you may well have never heard your CD collection sound so good!
Over the years it’s possible to have curated a very healthy CD collection some of which may not be possible to stream yet, so having this ripped onto the Vault 2i allows one to browse and use a CD collection as if it were our own personal streaming service!
