yeah, im about 1,5 tb with only music, both compress and lossless, my multimedia (meaning blurayrips, concerts, isos) its another entire ball game.

 

ive only been able to back up 1/3 of the music material, i havent really found a solid method to organize everything. since my netwoork is all over the place...

Hmm, results surprised me. 

I use about 5TB of external storage just about all of it is music.  I think pretty evenly split between hi-res music files, bootlegs and legit releases.  99% lossless.  It doesn't include cds(1000s) and vinyl. Just a music junky.

I voted for >1TB, but, indeed, I have an external 3TB drive almost filled with DVD-A and SACD images, 2TB almost filled with CD rips, hi-res flacs and vynil rips, and over 300GB on a local drive, unsorted. It's over 5TB in total, and vynil rips library is growing very fast. I keep music-related BD images separately - in my movies archive.

 

Hope it helps ;)

Large NAS drive, over 800gb of music files. CD's ripped as wav files, Hi-Res PCM and DSF rips/downloads and needle drops.

Mostly CD's, I think I still have the first CD I bought in the early 80's.

Media is definitely a thing in itself.

With HD movie files hitting 40GB+, TB isn't even that much anymore. Perhaps 25 movies if you really pack them in.

Whereas music files, even at their largest, are 500MB/file? Even with a 20-song album that's 10GB

I store all my music on Google Play Music. When my account reaches 20.000 files, I'll create a new account to further expand my music collection.

post #249 of 255

I answered more than 1 tb because of the movies mostly. I don't know if they count as Media.

post #250 of 255

I often just have to kind of reallocate space on my HDD for new music and move my stale old sustenance out of the way.

 

Having access to as much music in as high fidelity as I could possibly ask for is just such a pleasure.

 

:) Stay smiling fellers.

just over 500 gig for the main collection, same on the NAS for playback and all backed up in the office just in case. Do not want to go through ripping it all again.

post #252 of 255

2 TB, 1.5 TB's of HQ FLAQ and ALAC files. 

post #253 of 255

This is a difficult one to answer really as all my music is on CDs - I do not have any downloads at all.

 

I have, though, several drives of between 500GB and 1TB to hold and archive all my 24/96 session recordings and masters which I have recorded myself.

Thank you for your help answering my survey.

More options should be given for the vote.

I have 2TB lossless compressed CD format audio data like flac/ape, and 3TB high resolution audio data with PCM 24bit/88/96/176/192/384khz format, or DSD64 format.

If it comes to blue ray audio, one album can takes up 30-50GB space, while a CD rip just takes around 300MB per album.

Just adding feedback; the portable setup is obviously very different to at home setup in terms of storage and file sizes etc.
