How many CDs do you own?

I have just about finished digitising my CDs onto a NAS. Just over 800 and at 10 mins each that is a lot of time. I managed to discover some real nice, not too much played, CDs and some shockers.

I'll just have to enjoy them all again and see what I have missed.

This is not a competition as I suspect Dean will win but just interested in the numbers people have...

Too ***ing many, I’m bulging at the seams, and still buy more :doh:. Over 1000 at the last count, and 1 or 2 vinyl albums too.:D

Well, CDs are getting to be superfluous with iTunes as source (or whatever server you choose) plus Spotify for random listening- but I still have 1700, plus same of vinyl (that big black plastic stuff!)

But I play both formats rarely and consider shedding, after downloading the choicest.(John and Yoko 'Wedding Album' anyone? -circa £300!)

Space; the final frontier?

I thought that too. But you just stick a few CDs in while on-line each time (assuming an iMac, -sep hard-drive for collection.....which is a doddle.) And suddenly....... Now have 7000+ tracks.....!:D

over 5000????!!!!:shock::shock::shock:

Whose gonna spend closing on 30/40,000 squids on music? I mean I love music, but 20/30 quid a month is it, so even if I'd been buying CD's since 1985 at that rate, I'd still only own about 1000 of em!

It took me (& my bribed offspring) 9 months to rip 6200 CDs to my NAS. A total ball-breaker which occupied far to much of my spare time.

Worth it, though. They sound better through the Akurate DS.

Also, they are now all in boxes in the attic, & the wife is delighted with a whole wall freed up in the lounge.

One other good thing, CDs which had been either misfiled on the shelving, or worse still, bunged in the wrong jewel case re-appeared after, in some cases, years.

Regards,

Chris

Me.

Approx 6200 CDs since 1985. Works out at about £200/month, I suppose, but a hell of a lot of them have been bought 2nd hand.

That is one huge advantage CDs have over vinyl. I do not think I have ever bought an unplayable 2nd hand CD. Wish I could say the same about LPs.
