    Does anyone know of a CD tower/shelf/whatever that easily accomodates discs with the outer sleeves? It seems I cant find a storage system that will accomodate the slightly larger exterior size. I currently have all my sleeved discs put off to the side, but there has to be a GOOD solution for storage. I like to have all my discs arranged alphabetically (by artist, then album title), and having to keep them aside scews that plan right up. Ideas?

    The best I've found for those are media shelves that can old either CD's or DVD's. (they're adjustable)

    Anything that puts a seperator between discs won't work. Also, avoid shelves that are too small. You really need a CD/DVD system. On the plus side, you can store your DVD's there too.

    Or you can throw out your cases and store the booklet+CD in a giant binder or those cool CD posters that display them on the wall. I can't make myself throw them out, though.

    Know of any examples online of said shelves? I did the booklet thing years ago, and I didnt like it. I like having all of the discs with all of their cases and artwork.

    I just have a cheap cd/dvd media shelf. They're like 20 bucks and they have adjustible shelves.

    Where did you pick those up at? That is roughly the size I would be looking for (the 3 of them). Nice Dimmu tapestry.

    Thanks for the link to those Boltz. Their CD-600 looks like exactly what I need. I dont care that they are rather expensive. It is made in the US, and thats what I care about.

    Those are fantastic shelves, but i just don't personally care to spend the money on them myself. When i get a little more monay i'm switching over though.

    I just went to any office supply store and get the shelves.

    Dane Cook has been quoted more than the Bible, and until he comes out with a new routine, I don't find his current one funny anymore.

    You're quite welcome. I'm very satisfied with it. One drawback though, you pretty much have to empty the full rack to be able to move it...F'n heavy!! I can't wait to get a new place so I can order the expansion kit.
