    I hope everyone who buys it can enjoy the art set. I have the Mint records from a 70s German press that I got from a lost store in Amsterdam for 7€.

    Window shopping is good enough for me. I'm using Microsoft Windows 7

    Seriously, though, I could criticize DG for investing effort into the set. But they have a well-staffed marketing dept that undoubtedly does heavy research into what sells ... and, hence, where they (UMG) should best invest their resources.

    One walk thru a modern HiFi show gives you an idea of the vinyl market, turntables and related gear ... and what consumers are willing to pay. With those deep pockets, the new DG set makes "sense" as does ...

    With a bit of patience, one can pick up a second-hand set here in Denmark for 3 Euros or so. But an edition of 120 releases is targeting an outwardly elitist audience, of course.

    Back in the 1970s I went through at least four copies of the Karajan 9th trying to find one that didn't skip. Never did find one. Those big chords in the finale just bounced the needle right out of the groove. So I'll pass, thanks.
