    Default Seeking help with where to order the Mozart 225 Box Set

    Hi All,

    I swear to God ordering this mammoth set has been a nightmare. I am on my fourth attempt. The first two, from Amazon, arrived heavily damaged because of poor packaging and protection. So, I tried Target hoping it would be better. Nope - it arrived practically destroyed. I've re-ordered through Amazon and they put a note with the order to properly package and protect it. I am not confident. Does anyone know of any reliable online site where I may buy it from and it's guaranteed to come properly protected? I would appreciate the help.

    First world problems, I know, but alas, I kicked myself for years in not getting the 1991 release, so I don't want to miss this.

    A friend of mine bought it at JPC, it came in a extra box heavily protected by styrofoam, the only problem he had was a not good printed booklet and they send him a new one.

    I'm surprised you're having such trouble with Amazon. Mine from them (bought last month) came double boxed and is perfectly fine. The outer box was roughed up quite a bit but the inner box had no damage at all. It is awfully heavy though, so very easy to damage it.

    The third one came with a little ding in the corner, although it was more poorly packaged than the first two from Amazon. I thought about returning it, but they gave me a $90 refund, so I kept it.

    I was shocked two. So poorly packaged. This is a common problem according to the reviews on Amazon.

    Gellio (or anyone else), inside the Mozart 225 box do you have any indication of who was listed as the producer of the compilation of the Mozart 225 set? I can't find anything like that but I expect it's right in front of my face and I'm not seeing it.

    I haven't looked. I wasn't aware that there was a producer. You have it then?

    I hold my head in shame and please accept my apologies, I just send him an e-mail to call me as soon as he is awake.
    I bookmarked this thread so I can't forget.
