Wondering whats the biggest collection youve seen or heard about. Friends tell me i have to be up there, but at 70-ish i imagine there are much bigger collections. In the states? Abroad?
This might be a tired topic, but a search didnt turn up anything.

Also most commonly asked questions from visitors:

“Do they all work?!”
“Have you played them all at the same time”

Haha never fails.

I know member, Radiohier, has quite the impressive collection.  However, Craig (nz boom) from New Zealand had 300 boomboxes in his collection in 2016. I know he sold quite a few since then though.
 



Here is an old picture of Radiohier's collection:

Ha-Ha! Great Q: how do you synchronize to play all bboxes in your boom-room DSOTM!?
I have a dozen, a few still dead but already feel like I have one too many!

I'm quite sure gsbadbmr (Gordie) has the biggest.  Easily somewhere between 500 - 1,000, if not more.

And knowing GordIE, I'd say that 900 of the 1,000 are Conion C100s.  :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sure i ve got a collection but not this big as Samovar says.

There are collectors out there that have many many boomers in their possesion .

Many of them are keeping it low and I have in mind a few but I wont name them 

maybe they wouldnt like their name mentioned.

Pretty sure Craig had counted over 400. But yes he's sold quite a few.

The size of the collection isn’t that important, compared to the quality of the collection and the passion behind it.

My buddy in p.a. bashingu, has over 350 boxes in his attic, but its almost impossible to see them because he guards his collection like a fooking apache helicopter . he got 2 of my capital boxes in that dammed collection and of course he has to pose those 2 right in front of the never ending collection you wouldn't believe.
