    The other day, a co-worker showed me a picture thousands of vinyl and CD's he had collected over several decades (along with some nice equipment). I then told him I have the same amount of music, on a 3.5" hard drive whereas his took up an entire room.

    Well, what's your count folks?

    About 600 iTunes songs, with about 10 CDs. I'm still a novice, but 600 keeps me happy :)

    60-70GB of music
    100+ Movies in digital form

    I could play music for over 40 days straight and never hit the same song twice. I could never listen to all of it, but nice to have around :)

    250+ gigs worth of ripped and purchased music. Over 600+ cd's. My cd collection takes up a nice shiny metal carring case and two really big brown boxes in the garage!

    :D

    There is this thread from last year.

    I've got about 100 more LPs and maybe 150 more cds from the photos in that thread.

    I love looking at toothpaste's photos.

    My iTunes library stands , currently, at 11,735 tracks. I add about 150 a month to it.

    All songs with cover art and ID3 tags 100% perfecto:cool:
    Began with this January 1st 2007. Pretty neat in my opinion and I'm very, very proud of it.

    wow. i feel like such a beginner. lol.
    i have 260 songs [1.5GB], with a couple CDs I need to rip, and about 200 songs I need to get from a friend. Then you add in four movies, some music videos, two shorts and a ton of podcasts and that equals my library for now.

    I plan on ripping my DVDs but waiting to get the Mac mini for the storage.

    I used to buy CDs, now I pretty much buy everything on iTunes to save space.

    Perhaps... but his collection will always be more impressive and say a lot more about his commitment to music (and his opinion of its worth) than yours.

    This is exactly why I am starting to build my physical collection up to the size it ought to be—which is to say, "massive." :)

    Surely size is not as important as what you do with it? ;)

    I have over 3000 analog jazz and classical LPs and I wouldn't trade them for 10 times that amount of music on iTMS.

    I only play these on a Linn Sondek LP12.

    Most of my music is from CD's, but about 100 or so songs are purchased from iTunes.
