Hi kenammo. If it would be possible to save a Winamp or (whatever player you use) electronic list of your music and upload it here, I'd be very happy. I'm actually into new age, ambient, ethnic music (and many other genres and styles) and I'm definitely looking for lossless variants of some of my rarest bands.

 

 

So if this is not too much to ask, I could be interested in at least knowing where I can get lossless files, if sharing some of yours is not possible. This is a request and I'm very sorry if it's too much to ask.

Did some more trimming, now I am down to 4,895 songs with a total of 108.92GB of music. I kind of like this; makes finding albums and songs so much pleasant. :)

3,855 tracks, 383 albums, 84.6GB of music. I've added a lot of jazz to my library this year. 

 

I also use Spotify, which helps me save some money on not buying too many CD's all at once. Helps me listen to things I like enough to listen to, but not enough to purchase.

One of my justifications for using Spotify as well. ;)

Is your portable setup a subset of the 2tb or do you do something else?

I would never measure the size of my music collection by songs, as I rarely ever listen to individual songs and prefer to listen to full "albums" .

This is probably due to being brought up in the '60s when music was music and artists rarely issued albums with just some top 10 hit,

and filler material, but whose album releases were often seen as conceptual releases and were listened to as such.

Personally, I can not stand top-10 and see no value nor relevance to crass commercialization and 'purchased' radio airplay.

Soooo... after all that I have roughly 3.125 Terrabytes of audiophile grade (WAV or Flac or 320kbps) music.

I was born in the 60's, and earlier in my life I remember that many of my friends considered it to be uncool to listen to only a song or two from an album.  At the very least, you listened to an entire side of a record.  Even Greatest Hits compilations were viewed as being impure and not something a true fan would ever listen to over the original recordings.  I hold no such values with my music, but I distinctly recall this attitude.

When I had my LPs, I had about 10,000 songs. Not all of them made it into my iTunes library. Only about 3,000 songs in my iTunes library.

I like albums, too. I miss the AOR (album-oriented rock) radio stations.

After a recent library purge of low-res material, we're looking at ~19000 songs with >90% at mp3 320 and 16 or 24 bit ALAC
