Indeed, does this poll specifically count only CDs, or just music albums etc. in general whatever the media?

You need a poll of how much (in GBytes) you have stored as digitally stored music.
I have about 17GB.

Current total standing at 692GB on the Buffalo.
Track count (at last count) was 171,000 tracks. (including dupes)
CD count was over 2,500 at last count and growing fairly rapidly Smiley

Yes, I reckon polling the Gigs, and see where we get from there, Im going to write a quick script later to track just how much music PN customers have, both in Gigs and Tracks... should be interesting!

IMHO that's not such a good idea really, as we probably all use completely different bitrates... indeed, I myself have music encoded from everything between 128Kbps and lossless...

Re: Number of Music CD's Do You Have At Home?

I think an interesting poll would be how much music people own on CD, compared to digital now.
Since getting an MP3 player some years back, I buy a lot less CD's than I did (not that I bought a lot then anyway).
Do people still buy CD's now, or do you find your CD purchases have declined over the years?

I can't remember the last time I bought a CD to be honest.  It was probably about 4 or 5 years ago.
I do spend far too much money on iTunes though.

I've got a reasonable CD collection here in Sheffield, never counted them though. Also got a lot of musical in digital format only, along with probably 100 more CDs at my parent's house still (moved out 6ish years ago and not collected everything yet!)

You're the first person I've come across who'll actually happily admit that they buy a lot of music on iTunes. I've spent hundreds on it in the past couple of years, although I don't spend so much on it these days as it's not so great for classical music (although I have bought some classical from it). As a result, my music collection's a bit of everything really. Some CDs, some iTunes, some other downloaded music...
...which, actually, brings me on to wondering something else. Out of everyone's music collections, how much of those collections are actually constituted of legally owned music?

Surprisingly, I would say the startling majority of my collection is legitimate.
If I had to put a guesstimate, I would say that probably 150k of my files are legitimate.
