Accumulation isn't collection

Here's a story of a fanatical accumulator of records. The quantity is dizzying, but there is no mention of playing the records acquired.

This guy is accumulating obsessively, to preserve a vast diverse range of music.

I don't understand what is hoping to achieve. He is taking the records out of circulation. Excuse the pun, but that means that no-one can spin them to listen to the recorded music they contain.
