This magnificent box set of 8 mch SACDs is NOW available from Amazon for US $40....and even LESS @ AmazonUK (under $26 incl s/h).

What Are YOU waiting For?

BTW, Audiophile Audition which awarded this set 5 stars is giving away 6 complete sets if you register at their website.....and are one of the lucky winners!

Thanks for the heads-up, rammiepie: just snapped up mine from Amazon.co.uk for £15.12. I don't normally buy box-sets these days, but this offer was too good to resist.

At the price especially, a mandatory purchase.

The only thing that is giving me a pause is that there is a BluRay video of the complete quartets being released imminently. Different quartet obviously, but I don't know if I want to purchase 2 complete sets of this music in a row.

I'm waiting for a review of it.

BTW, that's a hint. : )

While the TQ may not wring every last ounce of drama from these pieces, I can't imagine that anyone would be disappointed in their beautiful tone and playing that is full of passion and warmth. The sound is gorgeous, too.

That is a great price for a set of LvB quartets in hi rez sound. Unfortunately, I stopped buying recordings of the Tokyo some time ago because I just don't like their style and approach. I have found their playing to be polite and proper which only goes so far. They bore me.

The majority of the Quartets were original DSD multichannel recordings.
