I don't think that mp3 quality is good enough, and play CDs quite a lot, though I play LPs more! It's true that CDs are quite easy to scratch, but with reasonable care they are fine. I just make sure that they go straight back into a case or wallet as soon as they emerge from the player, even if it's the wrong one! If one gets damaged through my clumsiness, I use one of the quite effective repair kits around. There are also surface treatments that make CDs sound even better, on a good player competing with LPs.

They can be ripped to another CD, of course, and one then has a spare in case of accident.
