A seemingly wonderful compilation including a 70 minute sampler for US $5.89 per disc...........Now that's what I call entertainment! And DSD/Multichannel, as well.

And Pentatone, here's hoping for another 100 years!

Yes, it is a good release. I am still missing a few of these titles.

But I hope they are the original releases put into a slipcase and not some kind of "economy" re-packaging.

When I read Amazon's description, how come the number of discs is just one?

I'm not certain, but for the price, and with international shipping charges being what they are, I would imagine that they will NOT come packaged in 11 SACD super jewel cases......

I pre~ordered mine from Amazon{US} and will not know until they are shipped on September 27th!

In any case, I consider this release as an early Christmas present.........

With all the advances in science, you never know!

Maybe you're destined to become Japan's first Caucasian Prime Minister!
