I dislike a disorganized and cluttered stereo. I have to just pair down about 50 lps of which I can easily find that I'm not all that interested in. BTW, you definitely have a spectacular system and dedicated AV/music room.
I'm already using my 5-disc player as a transport and know I can do better spinning discs w/ a dedicated CD transport. I'm not sure how to access my desktop computer in a different room.
