    Big gap between the first two and the rest.

    Amazon's not exactly in my good graces right now, since I ordered the Divina box set months ago, and the soonest they will be delivering it to me will be, 'no,' not this coming Tuesday-- which is the official "release" date; but rather by sometime after the release date-- which for me is anywhere from Friday, September 26, 2014 through Tuesday, September 30, 2014 by 8pm.

    I have listened to many 90 second track samples on Apple iTunes and there is no doubt for me that the improvement is easily noticeable and I will buy right away......as you should too!

    Those youtube samples above at 720p resolution leave no doubt how good the remasters are, you can hear spatial ambience and subtle vocal color that bring the recording alive as never before.....

    Amen brother, the shipping times are backlogged, even PRIME members if ordered now will not get two day delivery (more like 3-4 day)

    Itullian is to blame whipping up the public buying frenzy with C day countdown, heh heh

    Yeah, DA, I don't understand it. When, for example, I pre-ordered the latest Amon Amarth cd from Amazon, it was delivered to me the very same day the cd was officially released. I thought that's what the thrill of 'pre-ordering' was all about. . .

    My name may be "Marschallin Blair" but it's pronounced "Mimi Furst."

    -- Why can't these people get these things right?

    ;D

    Yes, it sounded like stereo.

    One day. . . plus 'three'-- since Amazon doesn't do same-day delivery.
