So how much gigs of music do you have

I have around 10gb

Since recently getting the 8gb ipod 3g. I have started to build my music collection. All my albums now have been tagged to my liking with album art (using mp3tag), I just filled my 8gb ipod and the coverflow looks wicked as I have around 100 albums on it.

I wouldn't mind the ipod touch just so I can look at the cover flow but I'm happy with my 3g for now as its my first mp3 player. I guess as my music collection builds over the years I will get a new mp3 player.

wow you guys have TONS of music. Explain to me about flac and lossless. Plus do you guys back up your music on external hard drives etc I'd hate to loose music if I had that much.

With my music I just make sure its mp3 and not any other file format. I don't change the bit rate quality for my music unless its under 80kbps. Any under 80kbps I noticed a loss in quality but anything over 80kbps I don't notice any difference in sound quality. Most of my music seems to be 192kbps though.

I would think the play-time is more relevant?

iTunes says: 1559 items, 9.2 days, 11.17GB.

(30 genres, 233 artists, 245 albums) roughly ;)

I have got about 90GB, which equates to just under 40 days playing time. I have still got quite a few albums to go on there, though!)

Just thinking about a 2Tb NAS as I have 2000 CD not yet ripped :eek:

I have around 20GB - although it all depends on what compression rates people are using which depends on how many tracks that equates to!

Lossless(for audio) compression system that doesn't lose any of the original audio information (unlike MP3,WMA, Ogg or ATRAC) hence the sound quality on playback should be the same as the original CD etc.

Examples are FLAC or Apple's lossless, but as not that many systems can play back lossless files natively (well, none of mine) , and you typically get about 50% original file size reduction, I'm keeping my lossless files in Wav format for now.

Yeah! Think you win! :smashin:
Storage is so cheap now and will only continue to become more so, and this is why I am so bemused by all the small drive mp3 players out there now. Ok solid state is really getting pushed now but surely its a hassle sorting out which 16GB of music you want with you and what you should leave behind.
Also I don't think its about how long it would take to listen to all your tunes, its about always having the right tune for the moment - i.e. having any tune for any moment has got to be the ultimate goal surely.
