I keep most of my originals in these: http://www.thejungles.com/oakvencdrac11.html The shelves go from floor to about 5 feet up and the shelves and the CDs look great. Of course I rip all the songs I'll DJ with to my computer and make compilations, so I never bring the originals anywhere. I've never...
