Around 1200.
 
Bookcases work well for me, storage-wise.

LP's are easier to store, more albums-per-inch and they stay nicely flopped in their racks. Smile
 
 
Also when people see my den they say things like : "Wow! you should open a museum"  or "you really know what you`re talking about" when they see multiple pressings of albums I own from various countries with various covers. Last time I checked I had five Hamburger Concertos ! I only buy CDs when I`m forced to, such as the Gentle Giant boxes or new Guru Guru albums. I also laugh at all these idiots on the internet that are trying to get ludicrous prices for LPs  that I`ve had for years. There`s a guy who has been trying to sell the same original Green Brain Kanguru album for $79 with the fold out cover since 2004as far as I can tell. I bought mine at place called Cheap Thrills in Montréal in 1977 for a lousy $1.50 Can`t beat vinyl. It has personality. Nostalgia. It sounds better. You can watch it go around. It`s far more interesting. You can fuss over it.

I got tired of having small CD holders everywhere so I built one that I think can hold about 800, which I have about half full.  The problem is if I actually put 800 in it, it might collapse from all the weight!Shocked
Biggles was in rehab last Saturday

Two more and I'll have 600. The bigger the collection the more it sucks when you don't have time to listen to it.
