anyone still frustrated about itunes match 10,000 limitation?

It makes me crazy that you can only use up to 10,000 songs for itunes match.

But what's worse, is the fact that I can actually accept the limit if it was user-friendly to CHOOSE which 10,000 of my library I wanted. It's honestly unthinkable that apple makes this impossible.

iTunes match limits you to 25,000 songs.

Yes, sorry. Although my argument still stands. It's not the limitation per se but the friction involved in choosing 25,000 should your library be >25,000

You can store up to 25,000 songs in iCloud (more if songs are purchased from the iTunes Store)
from some obscure website, but then again, that would be around 2,000 albums or only 6 days of music, depending on the number of titles per album or length of songs and compression of it.

I used the advice in this article to set up a second library so I could use iTunes match.

Have you given feedback to Apple yet?

I've done that too (set up a second library), but it's very difficult to maintain, especially if you want to switch out songs ...

That does sound like a PITA.

Considered Spotify? It'll match everything in your iTunes Library while also giving you access to so much more. Sure, it has ads, but you can pay a bit to get them removed. I honestly don't even touch iTunes anymore...

Like so many things "Apple", Match is not designed for extreme edge cases. And yes, dedicating 100% of a yearís salary on music is an edge case. Donít expect a solution design for the masses to meet your needs. You should be looking at other solutions. If having a complete library of that size is a requirement, you may want to get a dedicated 128GB device. That should be close to your library size assuming you donít use lossless.
BTW, you would be saving untold amounts of money by switching to a monthly service based system like Spotify or Rdio instead of buying so much music.
