O,
 
My guess 100,000 users. Wikipedia says 120,000 users. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soulseek
 
There are about 120 channels on Soulseek. These channels have between 50-850 users. I added up the number of users from the top 50 chat rooms and got ~12,500 users. Looking at the remaining channels, the median channel has 85 people, so 85*70 (the remaining channels after top 50) = 5,950.
 
You don't have to choose a channel to search/use the network, so I'm guessing the default user doesn't join channels. Regardless, there are ~18,500 users in channels.
