I've never owned a vinyl record or player in my life. I can't recall ever listening to one either. CDs did me just fine.

I have around 400-500 CDs stored in cases. I just started downloading music a year ago, and so far 46G worth.

It amounts to 75gb. It's ridiculous; I couldn't listen to all of this if I had it playing in the background of every scene in my daily life. Sometimes the amount of music there is in the world depresses me.

Yeah that's my thing. Even with a "small" collection, there's not enough time to listen to it and really comprehend it. Granted, many people here may be older than me and have been listening to music a lot longer than I've been alive haha. In any event these huge amounts of music are pretty cool. My music collection is always expanding and growing.

I have around 150 CD's that I've been collecting for years now as well as 50 or so vinyl that I've been collecting since last year. On my laptop I have 140 GBs of music. It's likely that 10% of that music is unreleased material I've recorded over the years.

^ If that`s only 10%, you have the most extraordinary collection I`ve ever heard of, rostasi. Clearly you must`ve robbed a record warehouse at sometime: Interpol have been notified.

I used to have about 300 vinyl albums, now I have the same number of cds that Frownland has - of which about 50 are "real" and 100 have been burned at little personal cost. In mp3 format I have 30 GB, mostly acquired since the fateful day when I joined MB.

( I notice you have a pretty good collection too, Psy-Fi; 10 times as many mp3s as me, for instance!)

Quality not quantity always. I have around 800 cd's and another 3000 albums on mp3 but I am always looking to downsizing. There is nothing worse than putting an album on and not knowing what your fave track is or what it sounds like in some cases.

Ideally I would love to just have 100 cd's chock full of the finest music known to man but there just isn't enough time to sift through it all.
