Believe me, I feel the pain of CD storage. But even as good as the
compressed formats are these days, there's still a fidelity/convenience
trade-off. Depending on the work in question I may or may not choose
one over the other.
I do backup my digital collection, but adding all my CDs ripped
losslessly would push the size w/backup to about a Terabyte of data.
That'll be cost effective sometime before too long and the back catalog
can go into storage then.
I /have/ mostly stopped using cassettes.
