    Once more we go in for the descriptive titles. Anyway in current space year 2019 how big is your physical music collection? I don't care if it is CDs, records, minidiscs, cassette tapes or burned CDs. Second question if a lot of that is stuff you have had for years how much has it grown by in recent years?

    So anyway I have about 5 CDs. Last one would have been Christmas 2006 wherein I got Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards by Tom Waits.

    I've got a limited edition LP of Morning Parade - Under the stars.
    And a CD of Caro Emerald, Deleted scenes from the cutting room floor.

    That's.. about it.
    Aside from Game OSTs that I got with LE editions.

    Limited edition editions?

    I suppose also a third question would want to be asked. Have you got rid of any physical music you once might have had?

    I have a box of maybe 30 old cassette tapes in various genres. Also I have a CD spindle at my pc with 40 or more compact discs we bought before music became available for digital download. Also, sad to say, I had my dad's and mother in laws collections of 8 track tapes but they were given away.

    My dad still has almost 100 vinyl albums (records)

    I only have a few old CDs. Some of them I only bought because of the Amazon autorip function.

    I have no CDs in my current apartment but I believe I have about 50 albums I left at my parent's before moving out of the country.

    I have about 120 CDs, virtually all of them I have lossless rips of them (some ripped myself, some not).
    Because I have the majority backed up, I would like to sell them one day.

    Hello. :)

    Good question.Best "definition" is:

    When i open a closet,open a drawer,look into a box,look between the video console stuff,look into Pc part stuff,look in a cupboard,look in the car.....

    Yes,there is always a CD everywhere.:)

    Something like 110+ vinyl records with 5 duplicates, three game OSTs with physical copies CD, one non OST h too.

    5 of the records I got around 2017, the rest were nearly all last year and a handful this year. Almost all stuff I bought since I knew I'd like it/had it pirated.

    EDIT - Didn't get into the hobby until physical media was a non starter, the only stuff I've gotten rid of is burned discs - it was all the hits but around 2011 I moved away from that and 2013 I slowly made my collection into 70s - 80s records, but the older I get the more open I become to music from any period really.
