Quality > Quantity


My biggest issue with digital is I've accumulated so much more average music or just music that never gets a 'fair go' or learnt properly, it's been incredibly hard curbing my buying habits with how cheap shit is compared to vinyl.. I'd listen to a track/sample dozens of times when I had to spunk $20 on a record, compared to the comparitively vague listens some tracks get before you hand over <$2

Anyway. Unless your a wedding/21st etc DJ you'll never ever ever need 7000+ tunes.
