Nothing wrong with that. especially if you're grabbing variants from the label and not the aftermarket.  I'd still be interested in seeing a list if you've got one – I've seen some decent variant collections, but I spy a few releases in your photo that are approaching levels of Reinventing Axl Rose.

Chances are you might be eyeing that center cube - in which case it's I Am The Avalanche (S/T, Avalanche United, Wolverines - all presses, all variants, and tests).  Two cubes below that is This Is Hell (all releases, and all variants of those releases). Long Island bands and their infinite variants... My only regret as a collector is not keeping my discogs collection updated after all these years - it's something that I've slowly been working on though.

i used to collect variants, then i got smart, kept the rarest and sold the rest to fund more records.

my self-sustaining habit

This is exactly where I'm headed. I already got rid of all my Fall Of Troy Doppelganger variants that ETR repressed, because those are worthless to me. I still have the OG pressing from Divergent Records (both variants).

Because the shitloads of variants trend is relatively new and could lead to bankruptcy I have tried to be sensible with them. Only collect for bands/artists I LOVE. Not just like a lot.

 

And then, don't go for all of them. Chose a couple that really appeal, deluxe editions, signed or whatever.  Although when there is a set of a manageable number like 3 it's very tempting to go for the 'full house'.

Does the music sounds like it's in mono, with the speaker's being so close together?

 

I have that MM PoaAF box, the Pantera box, and the White Zombie box too!

No but I'm planning on getting a new receiver since the right channel on mine doesn't work for some reason. Damn I'm surprised you could see that so well, probably didn't notice the Alexisonfire box, Type O box, or Meshuggah box. -___-

A quick fix to get much better stereo imaging (once you get the other channel working of course)

Sweet collection. It's unfortunate that you didn't get a bunch of "bro, you're my hero", "I wish you were my best friend" and "Sorry if this is inappropriate...but I've never felt this way about another person before...I think...I need to call off the engagement with Rachael...and figure out these feelings..." comments that I got tho.

Why are people so bothered by variant collectors? I am one and I think it's awesome and fun to pick up each piece especially if there is a cool story to tell about it. Your collection and set up look rad. Nice job.

variant color whores...i am one of them too. so much money on the same LP

Nobody is really bothered by it, I just think those of us who don't variant collect think, "wow, that money could have bought a ton of different records rather than 20 copies of the same one." That appeals more to the majority of us because we like to have a large collection of different music. To each their own though.

I agree that I could have bought 18 different records than having 18 To The Beat Of A Dead Horse lp's but they look so awesome together. I still collect certain bands but I also buy a ton of other records outside of those collections. 

I think I started really getting into variant collecting once I saw the Against Me! collections.

I have multiple copies of the same title, but mine are usually a different mastering.

:rolleyes:

 

I have two two copies of Sleep's Holy Mountain because they have different masterings, but I try to keep variants to a minimum because I'd rather have a bunch of different records to listen to. Like I said, to each their own, but for me it would be silly to collect $500 or more worth of Holy Mountain when instead I can get a bunch of other records I enjoy.
