I've moved 4 times in the last 4 years and got rid of 600, so I am down to 850Lp's. I'm getting set up to record all my lp's onto cd's and would like to get down to 400 when I am done.

WOW! If you get rid of more, I know someone in your neck of the woods who loves vinyl...

Easy...15,000+ LP's, 8,000+ 45 rpm singles, about 300-400 78's, a couple thousand CD's, 300-400 cassettes with another 100 or so cassette singles, 300-400 pieces of sheet music, plenty of downloads, a smattering of 8-tracks (haven't counted those yet), about 20-30 reels of reel-to-reel tape, a few piano rolls and ONE Edison cylinder...Now, I can add an Edison diamond disc or two to the mix, thanks to our friend Big B...

Of course, that was at LAST count...and only an estimate! 8-[

In the last several months I've winnowed my LP collection down to ~1,000. This is from a maximum of 3500+.

All my CD's (~1600) have been ripped to an NAS. The CD's are safely stored.

About 600, gathered over a period of 30+ years.

I only have 100 or so, but then again only a few months ago I decided to add analog to my little system. Own 4,000 + shiny discs though so the clutter at home is reaching unmanageable levels believe me!

Just changed my poll position to 1000+ after entering a few recent purchases into my database and noticing the number of entries. :)

3000 to 5000 for me

Will be trimming that back by 1000 or so over the next year

The destruction of a bookcase holding about 500 records brought me down to about 750.

Edit: missing word.

Vinyl records, all formats, currently 777 but constantly growing. Most of these are LP's, 703. Out of those a handful are 10" LP's. I also have 318 CD's (also steadily growing) giving me a total of 1086 records at the moment, though I went with the "500-1000" option since this is a vinyl-oriented site :)

I clicked on 3001 to 5000 with my total being quite close to the bottom end of that range. My figure includes all forms of recorded music except for cylinders and rolls of which I do not have any yet. Note that I included two sets of sheet music. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :roll: :mrgreen:

And the correct answer, boys and girls, is...NOT as many as I'd LIKE to have! :wink: :lol:
