Streaming is great, I use it most of the time, but keep the wall of records and CD's. It makes terrific ambience for your listening room. I have some occasional gatherings and it seems a lot of my friends [mostly 60-ish] will pick out a record they want to hear on the Thorens, and I am happy to indulge them.
