Approximately 200 cassettes recorded back in the '80's and 90's from friends' collections (remember the old "Home taping is killing the record industry" logos)oops.
Approx. 500 CD's.
System Goals/Comments: Inexpensive, and to my ears, proves that vintage mixed with relatively "current" equipment can provide a true insight into the "high fidelity" experience.
System Strengths: Brings out the formerly hidden from me subtle(and some not so subtle) nuances of my music collection.
System Weaknesses: Trying not to think about that right now. ;)

Comments on HT System: Apartment living rules out a sub, but Advents kick out impressive bass without upsetting the neighbors. I'm happy with the sound. My receiver is too old for HDMI, so I use a digital optical(toslinc) cable for "surround sound".
