This post follows a similar one in the Headphone forum:

How many CDs/LPs do you own?

Also, how many CDs/LPs do you buy a week?

I usually buy 2-5 CDs (some LPs) per week. My collection includes what I currently own (about 1,500 CDs, down to 75-100 LPs) and what I've sold/traded (at least 1,000-2,000 CDs and 750-1,000 LPs).

well, I've been kinda stuck on the same number of CDs lately. just as many have come in as have gone out. over the past few moths I've sold about 50 old ones I simply didn't enjoy listening to anymore.

so, currently I have about 75 CDs, 10 of which I'm not sure if I'll keep em or not.

and I tend to buy about 3 or 4 a month, sometimes more when I'm buying cheaper Cds (oldies for instance), sometimes less when I'm buying new ones at the wrong store (
)

I have no interest in keeping everything I buy. I like keeping one (60 CD) rack filled with favourites I listen to a lot, and keep the entire rack in rotation, while keeping the others "in storage". I thoroughly cleaned out the "storage tho....but it did allow me to check some odd-ball stuff from the money it got me

I now have about 7,000 Cds and a bit less than 16,000 records.I have been giving away a lot of records trying to get that number down to about 10,000.I have probably had 150,000 records,tapes and cds pass through my hands over the years.I have stopped selling music and choose to give it away instead.

About 1200 CDs, 3000 LPs. I'm trying to get that down by 10 - 20 percent. I buy far less than I used to.

I've only about 300 CDs & even less LPs amassed in my lifetime (taking into account of the stuff I traded or given away). I guess I have been very fussy about what I buy!

I have only about 85-90 CDs, each of which I love. I'd have about 30 more if Visa would stop jacking around with my latest order. ...

My to-buy list far outstrips my funds. I need to stop buying hi-fi equipment so I can buy more music. That stupid 'How much has Head-Fi made you spend?' thread made me realize I've spent almost $1200 on gear this year and only abot $400 on music. That ratio isn't what it should be for me -- well, actually, both of those numbers are way too high, but frankly I'd probably get more enjoyment out of $1200 worth of music and $400 worth of gear than as it is.

Wow. Where/how do you store a collection this size?

Just think, if you play ten CDs a day from your collection, you would get through it all in a little less than two years. . . .

~200: about 100 of which are out in my main rack by stereo. The rest are in Case Logic cases and I'm not sure what I'm gonna do with them sell them or keep them.

(I also have about 150 CDs I downloaded from UberNet, I know I feel bad, but the ones I like I will buy the CD eventually
)

My cd collection is slowing building up. But I have a much larger collection of music on my computer. I have enough mp3 to play non-stop music for almost a month without repeating.


Do the math you can get a rough figure of the number of cds i have in mp3 format.
(hint, my 60gig is full
).

tuberoller wins!
only about 350 cds here. Then again, can any of you have imagined owning three hundred pieces of music and then a thousand? My collection still boggles my mind.

100 cd's, 60 lp's.

The number aren't indicative at all, the cd collection dates back 9 years while I've scooped up this much vinyl in the last few months. Yesterday was the first time I've bought a cd in 3 months.
