Amazon US finally has the Sony boxed set of most of Beethoven's works...

And for only $26! http://www.amazon.co..../dp/B000NDEMAI

I paid about $60 for this set importing it from Amazon DE a few months ago.

See my thread in the Music forum for details. You won't be disappointed.

Mods -- it's actually 60 CDs, not 70. Still a great deal of course.

Thanks, Dennis!

Mine is ordered. They estimate it won't ship until 10/1, which is nearly 2 weeks from now. Do they really take that long on their Super Saver shipping?

Thanks for the link. I already own the comparable Masterworks Bach, Mozart, Haydn, Dvorak and Brahms sets.

Is this a bargain, because it looks like it's the regular price. I'm a little short on money right now, but would definitely buy it in a few weeks if it's still that price. It's only about $2 below the listed MSRP now, though.

At $.43/CD, I am guessing the price is not going down any. I will also guess that listed MSRP is wrong.

Actually, the Masterworks sets are on the budget label Brilliant Classics. Even though the box design for this one looks similar, it's a Sony release. (I hope there aren't 60 jewel cases in there, though. . .)

Chris

I was more wondering if this was a standard price that would still be the same in a month or two or if I should try to find some cash right now to get it before it goes up.

At these prices, could these be decent recordings?

Sure they could. And people who already have it have commented positively in the thread in the Music folder.

The Penguin Guide has very positive things to say about almost all of the Zinman orchestral stuff.

Did anyone actually get this? I ordered it, but didn't notice my PayPal debit card was the default on my account, and I don't normally keep any $ in PayPal, so I cancelled it. Now it is showing as something Amazon doesn't sell. Originally it showed it wouldn't ship for at least a week, and that has only been a few days.

I know several people have gotten this from Germany, but did anyone actually get it from Amazon for $26?
