Well, the title says it all.

I have about 600 CDs - everything from classical to heavy metal! Most of it from 80s though...<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

I have about 350 cd's. Mostly pop. A lot of soundtracks and a lot of rock.

I have all kind of music, except hip hop.

I have a little more than 1200 "music containers". Half of them CDīs (including singles) and the other half vinyl where most of them are 12" singles from the 80īs.

I seem to be the one with the lowest number of CDs, but I am 18 and I can't afford to buy a new CD every week......
Well, I have counted them some weeks ago and I have 196.

I have about 800. Most of it is DM (3 shelves) but I have a lot of industrial/EBM/soundtracks/rock/pop. When I love bands I really love them so I have sections devoted just to bands. Like for instance I have every CD and CD single of Duran, every CD and CD single of Erasure, ditto for PSB, DM, Alphaville, NIN etc. You get my point... It is weird that my 800 CD's really only consists of 25 bands. I am a real collector type though. I LOVE to collect! I will spend $30 for an import CD single with an extra track on it that I can't get in my own country. So hence, yes, I am a lunatic..but hey! I have a great music collection..lol.

Now, if your talking vinyl and cassette, that's another story!

About 50 CD's!! (20% Alphaville)
Why have more CD's than you need or listen to???
Quality rather than quantity!

I dont really like cds,in fact i hate them but unfortunately it seems to be the only way you can get alot music these days,if you count burning mp3's (which are worse!).I have to admit to being a vinyl junkie and i supppose my collection is well over the 7000 mark now,i counted 6800 and something a couple of years back.I think the cd collection is at just over 1000,dont really play them much tho.My vinyl is mostly electronic music,too many bands too mention,but theres quite a lot of Sparks,after all they did virtually start it all,huge chunk of Depeche Mode,every item by I Start Counting i think you get the picture.

Hi Sacha,if you dont mind me asking what MD player do you have?I have got a Sony MDSJE510 and have found the sound to be anything but pure.MD seems to have a very low frequency response therefore only giving you about 2 thirds of the original sound,and quite tinny as they have an even lower sample rate than cd.Perhaps it might be my machine so you might be able to recommend a better one as this format is nice for bootlegging concerts.
Thanks
Stu

This is little off topic, but I have been a MiniDisc user since spring 1997, and I find the sound good, but not as good as CD (of course), itīs a recording, and compared with a cassette player, thereīs a world of difference.

simpledumbpilot &gt; how much are you willing to spend ?

For MD I talked about Pre-released MD of course a yourself released MD can't be better than a CD
But if a MD is so bad why does groups like Marillion or The Cure use it? <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

@Sacha^^

simpledumbpilot
13 Jul 2001, 01:32
i guess the reason that md's by marilion and the cure is because the back catalogue is owned by sony or subsidaries of sony,and since sony is the largest maker of mini-disc then theyre gonna push the product as much as possible.its probably more of a record company decision to release those albums on md rather than the choice of the particular artist,the cure and marillion are safe bets,they both have global success and as such there is a demand for their material.its unlikely that a company would back up a format by releasing discs by unknowns such as 'twilight' for example,as the product just wouldnt sell.anyway,it wasnt that i thought md was so bad,all i wanted to know quickly was if you could recommend a player,thats all as mines a bit old now.i guess we'd better just get back to the cd topic.
