Wow- you live on the Sunshine Coast- I had an apartment south of the Gold Coast until last year.
Many happy years there, what a perfect climate! What beaches. What great surf clubs with cheap
beer & excellent meals. I miss it but retirement meant I was priced out of Australia.
I grew up in Sydney and the Gold Coast. "Many happy years there". Well, I don't need to tell you anything about the place. To everyone else: If you love Nature and you love being out of your comfort zone, Australia will fulfill and exceed your expectations. Life On The Edge.

Just to be devils advocate - average record is 40 mins long 40 x 2000 = 80,000 = 1333.33 hours = 55.55 days solid.

For me I get to spend, at best 6 hours listening a week. that's only 312 hours - so that means it will take me 4.27 years to get through 2000 records end to end.

My simple point being that isn't there a bit of showboating like stately homes in the uk with people who used to buy a 'yard' of books?

I have perhaps just over 1000 records - truth be told I can't genuinely say I know each record very well.
