Tried to add some more detail about the library. Via Squeezebox, the library count is 3,343 files, with a rough breakout listed below. Sorry about the multiple amendments, but I had issues with the site when trying to add this detail. Conservatively listing the numbers of audiophile files as some were not tagged as such via MusicBrain when I ripped them.
