    You can also buy the DVD version for $10 at classicselect.com.

    Unfortunately I would have such limited opportunities to listen to that, whereas an audio file, I can take many places. I'm half a technological moron, so if there is an easy way to extract the sound file off a DVD via computer then I would consider that avenue. So unless someone knows of an easy way (note opperative word there: "Easy") to do this, I will for now, choose a stream. It's not like I don't have about 5-7 other cycles that have piqued my interest between Granate's & Merl's threads to keep me occupied for a while, let alone the 700 or so other recordings of other pieces and composers that are on my wish list... I have patience.

    Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

    I picked my Gielen cycle up for £5 secondhand (it was mint) last year. Huge bargain. I'll let you know if I find it cheap again, Varick.
