    Digital Music Collection

    Post by shabbs on Thu Apr 02, 2009 11:32 am

    I don't know about the rest of you guys, but once I discovered MP3s and found an easy to use, networkable audio device that I could hook up to my stereo, my digital music collection has grown tremendously and I never touch a CD after I've bought it and ripped it. It's all accessed digitally over my home network.

    I use a couple of Slimdevices Squeezeboxes to play my music at home and it provides a sweet web interface as well as a remote to control everything.

    Current collection details:
    - Total Size: 104 GB
    - Total Tracks: 14,763
    - Total Albums: 1,092
    - Total Artists: 398
    - Total Genres: 53
    - Total Playing Time: 1058:32:01

    Screen shot of the web interface for controlling and accessing my music:



    Pretty slick stuff, and it's amazing to have all those tracks available at the click of a button. It has really re-vived my entire music collection.

    I'd be more than happy to provide any input/guidance you need when you want to get started. There are lots of different options out there now with many companies offering "devices" that do the same thing.

    I tried to get into iTunes but just didn't like it. I didn't get the feeling that I had total control over my music and what iTunes was doing with it when it synched music up. For my iPods, I use a product called Anapod Explorer which works just fine for me and allows me to remain iTunes-free.

    How much is it Shabbs?
    Are you able to burn cd's using this for your car? Or is it just to store and play music from there?
