I have approx, 12,000 albums on vinyl. Approx, 3,000 on 45. Approx, 300 33's.
I have 5 DVD music specials, like THE OLD GREY WHISTLE TEST, the best of.
I got approx 700 classical cd's. I have approx 4,500 album cd's. I have like approx, 2,000 freebies, from newspapers, magazines and collected from BM's. They're all cd's and cd singles.

As for MP3's? zilch. It's all in WMA format and I have like 300 or so.

Well wma sounds fine to me.
Then I guess that is all that really matters. I'm sorry if it came off as me bashing your choise in encoders, there are just so many reasons I dislike wma (closed source, no multiplatform, poor quality etc).

I highly recommend everyone try the LAME mp3 encoder and/or Musepack. Links to follow shortly...

Don't be sorry, I prefer people to say what they likes and likes what they says.

Personally, all music should be live and played live only, look what cd creators, digital enhancers and mixing studios with expensive software can do. It turns a bad singer into sounding good. Huh Millie vanillie (or whatever their name was) is a good example as why all music should be live.

Lee thats and awesome collection you have got there your house must look like HMV or something!
I thought I had alot of music but my 600 odd albums would dissapear and not be noticed in your collection I bet!
Stuff MP3s when you have all that though surely you meus need a jukebox or something ;)

*Edit* I have seen some of the stuff from the Old grey wistle test and there has never been a program like it since and i dont think there ever will be :( it was awsome some great sessions by The Who there :) *

The few reasons I don't go for ogg:
1) way too many forks and different builds of encoders
2) High Frequency boost issue
3) needs higher bitrate than mpc to be transparent

Heheh I know that feeling my personal weakness is limited or collectors editions like a total sucker I will go for them everytime :)

The reggae dictionnary was definatly interesting :D I am not such a big reggae fan other than the Bob Marley that should be in everybodies collection although I am a big Ska fan which is not far from reggae

Over 2500, in my metal folder. I have another drive which I'm too lazy to get. Must have another 3500 in that.

Right now 160 gb, I think it's somewhere around 24,000 songs (not sure). I still have about 300 cd's left to rip. I own about 750 cd's, 200 or so LP's and probably about 500 cassettes. Some of the stuff on vinyl and cassette are also on CD. I also have alot of "live" traded material.

Most of it is in Musepack. Some is mp3 using LAME with the commandline --alt-preset standard and mp3gained. I also use FLAC for lossless backups to cdr/dvdr and hdd.
