Default How big is your digital collection?

Kinda curious how big is your digital collection.

My collection is mostly in flac format with some hi res included. I have just about 1.1Tb. My categories are mostly

Rock (not including alt., metal etc.) 40%
Prog 20%
Jazz 15%

Etc.

I think mine is about 1/2 a TB in flac only. I do have a substantial number of MP3's on another PC, but I need to bring it in to recover the data (one day).

I'm probably close to the numbers you posted for genres, although I haven't checked. Lately I've been in a real Prog mode and Classical as well.

I'm enjoying them and for the money they are certainly well worth it.

I was going through my collection to realize classical is highly lacking. Any basic must have classical, overtures or symphonies mostly?

I'm no expert or even slightly knowledgeable about things Classical, but yes, symphonies are easily at the top of the list as we've all heard them through the years. I have several compilation discs that are a good way into the genre. Unfortunately most of my classical music is on vinyl, so I don't get to enjoy them as conveniently as I would like.

From the years of 2002-09 I had about 20GB of 128-320kb mp3 collection.

Since I got into blu-ray I have demanded a higher quality sound across all platforms. So now I have gotten a .flac database going which is about 15GB already and is only about 5% rebuilt.

I have about 200 dubstep songs going lately that have no flac available as they are only released in 320kbps formatt. Which is very disappointing, but some would argue the genre doesn't need it. I'd still like it high quality

320kpbs is actually not bad. In fact, many people can't tell the difference between it and a .flac file, but I think that might also be system dependent. I have several hundred 320kpbs files from DD's that came with my LP purchases and they sound pretty good.

Music : 175 GB
Movies: 435 GB
TV Shows: 130 GB

Roughly...... This is what it was the last time I checked. I have it set up with the PLEX app on my nexus 7 and the iPads so it can all be streamed to the tablets even from my work. The app works decent most of the time.

The music is set up on a NAS box in my equipment room and I have a touchscreen mounted on the wall in the theater room that is running a jukebox program, and we can choose what we want to listen to from there. I am working on getting it set up in the kitchen also .

Beethoven's 9 symphony's is probably a great start. Do you prefer the older Mozart /Bach or more romantic Tchaikovsky( Nutcracker) or more modern like Copland( Rodeo)?

I have somewhere in the ballpark of 1.1TB of music, which is a mix of everything.

Also have all our blu-rays on the NAS, which are currently taking up 5TB of its space.

I am a classical nut. The genre is very large in terms of what you can hear. Cool thing about it, is if you listen close to today's music, you can hear that it has been influenced by classical music greats of the past.

Check this book out, it is a great reference to start you on classical music.
