  1. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    This thread will have the goal of updating the 2015 Talk Classical Top Recommended Operas on CD and DVD since five years have passed from the last voting and many new members and opera fans have appeared in this forum. Also, the new load of Opera recordings, especially on Video format, make it...

    I'm noticing that Amazon seems to be listing fewer second-hand CDs from third-party sellers (and those it does list are going up in price). Can anyone recommend a good alternative site for buying used classical CDs (UK-based, or at least shipping to the UK)? Thanks!

    I'm looking to get a complete symphonies set on CD. Right now I stream all of my music on Spotify so I'm not sure if there are some higher quality options that I'm missing out on. Recommendations?

    A grab bag of $5 used CDs in good condition...*
  5. Classical Music Discussion
    By sheer luck I popped into my local library's bookstore today shortly after someone had donated about 500 classical CDs. After I picked my jaw up off the floor, they said I could have as many as I could fit into a box for $20, so I crammed about 150 CDs into that thing. All quality stuff in...

    Stockhausen's LICHT: The Buying Guide CDs all come from Stockie's website: I thought I would share this; I know I would have appreciated having it. 1. Donnerstag aus Licht (Thursday) Michael's "solo" opera 1978-1980 Stockhausen Edition no. 30; 4 CDs for 68 € 2...

    I'll kick off with this possibly mispriced Brilliant box of 65 Handel CDs for $20.99 (in the US anyway). Not available yet, but if you have an interest you maybe should order it now. Amazon has a price guarantee that applies even...
  8. Religious Music
    I recently purchased a CD of Gregorian chant which was accompanied with the organ. Does anyone know any more CD's like this as I find unaccompanied singing dull?

    Hopefully we'll get a range of styles and instruments. Top of my list would be Siegbert Rampe's two Froberger CDs on MDG.

    Congratulations! You just won a TalkClassical (?) lottery and the prize is free CDs for the rest of your life from any label that you choose. So which label will you select? And why? ------------------ Fine print: The offer includes all discs currently in print as well as all new issues and...
  11. Recorded Music and Publications Looks like he ain't cheap... like not on iTunes either :( Anyone have any of these?

    I am culling my collection. In the past I have donated these to the local library, but am wondering if I might be able to get some money for them.

    The title says it all. Out of curiosity, do you return CDs you bough online if they have damaged cases? The jewel case has a hairline fracture. The box a dent. Do you return them? Am I crazy for expecting a "new" product to come undamaged?

    I am getting to the stage where my shelves are groaning under the weight of CDs, and the top shelves are becoming more difficult physically for me to access. I've been thinking about the possibility of ripping the CDs into a music storage system, and I notice that the Nova Fidelity X10 in the...
  15. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    It's that time again friends :) When we all vote for our favorite opera CDs and DVDs to recommend them to other members. I'll use the most recommended operas thread to list the operas, they were voted for based on popularity, and we'll have 48hrs to list our favorite before I move on to the...
  16. Off Topic Pub
    Hello Everyone, WARNING LONG POST... I am being forced to take my music collection digital onto my computer and into "the cloud". The reasons why are legion so I will explain at the moment. I am not great with computers and this is the first time I've attempted to do this. Like many a Talk...

    Just to inform you guys, selling off used CD's is bad. They used to be worth so much more, particularly pop and rock and rap but now they are not worth much used. Just like $.25-$.50 per disc for the compact discs. Very terrible devaluation of CD collections. Which is why when I buy CD's I am...
  18. Classical Music Discussion
    This topic has been brought up in another thread, I think this will be a better place for that conversation. Personally, I think that CDs, tickets, CD players, turntables etc. are consumer products. The music on the CDs and the live performance of music are not consumer products but rather a...

    Or at least supported by advertisements, as is so much else? This article from Atlantic reports a significant decline in sales of both CDs and digital downloads, and a big increase in streaming. Hard to imagine what this future will be like...

    I recently bought Beethoven's quartet cycle by Quartetto Italiano and it skips terribly on my main listening CD player, which is a CalAudio (California Audio Labs Mark II) player that I purchased a couple decades ago (sold to me as "high-end"). The same player does not cause skips on many...
