How to curate and stream a large music collection

I currently have about 420 GB of 320 kb/s mp3 albums of mostly classical music. Since almost all of these I ripped from my own CDs, a long and laborious task, I have 4 replicas of my collection. This has saved me at least 6 times. I have had a hard disk crash, and a backup disk erased by the restore program! Nowadays, a 2 TB external drive is only $89, so it does not pay to be chintzy about backup storage.
