Here's an approach.
Inasmuch as I have a lab full of equipment to test, generally mess with, etc, what I actually listen to
is I have a dual core machine with a pleasant realtek board; there are twin 500G drives, and my CD' and vinyl are simply ripped at 320k. There are simply separate folders for rock, classical, jazz, electronic and 'other' and it's organized in a heirarchy I like, since I did it!
The line out goes into an Aphex 204, then into a pair of M&K 1611P's (crossed over at 80) and a JL audio f112 or f113 sub.
Whether playing some background Chopin, or the latest nickelback at 115 dB, all I can say is you should see the looks on people's faces,
and many are speechless for hours...!
Let's put it this way: after setting up sound systems for nearly 50 years, I simply like it! I can find any of my favorites in seconds, and it's enjoyable!
