I can say I have listened to every single file in my collection (50,000+). Every new MP3 file gets listened to before it's added. Last year, I completed a project to listen to every existing MP3 file as well, over 120 CDs worth. It took me about three years to get around to hearing them all. (Although most I had heard at least once already.)

And of course, I've listened to every CD in my library, so even if I haven't listened to the actual ripped MP3, I'd still count that.

Consider though, I listen to music ALL the time, at least 8 hrs a day at work.

I don't get much duplication, but I like it that way.

There is Limit ;) I think it is 2Gb Library file size due to Access Database size limit ;)
