      I wouldn't want to search the stack to find out.

    When does collecting cross the boundary into hoarding?

    Hope that warehouse has AC and controlled humidity in Brazil!

      He sure didn't buy 6 million records 100 at a time...

        I used to know a woman with a massive record collection. She did music research professionally for soundtracks, commercials and whatever. Back in the late '70s in the small town/rural south a lot of small radio stations on both sides of the still extant color line were either going under or being bought out. She got entire libraries either just by hauling them off or for a few hundred bucks for the entire library.

        Where she really scored was the equipment. Phono equalizers with continuously variable hinge points and curves, old transcription tables, R2R decks, even a wire recorder. Most of it needed refurbishment but with an Airforce base and Naval Shipyard in town finding techinicians wasn't a problem. And cartridges, old vintage cartridges. And tubes.

        She had an office and climate controlled storage with an extensive CO2 flood fire protection system. Much of the initial setup was funded by selling duplicates of recordings and equipment in the collection to collectors, and not cheap either. The way she put it was if anyone whining about price had gotten off their asses and put in sweat equity themselves, they could have gotten it for free. This after one person was upset and mouthy at paying a couple of thousand for a record she had gotten for free, excepting moving tens of thousands of records by herself, curating the library (with a top of the line 286 12 mgHz computer to run dBase II on), buying the commercial shelving, leasing the space, buying the fire suppression system, replacing thousands of deteriorated sleeves with acid free, etc.

        After awhile, she didn't listen to music as a hobby or to relax anymore since basically it was her job. Didn't watch much TV either, she didn't want to listen to anything.
