      Larry, very cool thanks for bringing this up. they used a Neumann VMS 80 for cutting duties, which in all likelihood means no dmm or digital processing anywhere.

          Looking forward to your opinion. I'm interested, but not blindly so. Thanks, Larry

            Amazon now has the Rattle/Brahms set for pre-order at $600 USD. Straight from DG maybe the better offer.

            If it included several of the choral works (a la Abbado) I'd probably jump on it.

            Beaur, others, any input on this set? TIA

              My set set was in Customs for 4 weeks and is now in the USPS system somewhere in NJ. Hope to get it today or tomorrow. As soon as I move the Christmas tree from the sweet spot I will give some serious needle time to the LPs 🎼

                Quick update;

                Received my package today when I got home. After a five week wait, I was anxious to see/hear the discs but I obviously won't be able to comment much about the sound as of yet.

                First, the set is well packaged and double boxed to survive the journey from Germany, so there were no issues with the condition of the set. Second, the box itself is done to very high standards and the fit and finish are excellent. My past experience with their previous box sets was similar. Only label with higher quality is ERC in my experience.

                A quick listen to LP1 Side One; LP fits on both my TT spindles which can be problematic for some new releases so no reaming needed. The eagerly anticipated needle drop was so silent I worried I had missed! The music is excellent, discs are quiet and the performance is very, very good. Guess I will be listening to a lot of classical music in the near future, not such a bad thing. I don't have easy access to the bulk of my classical LPs at the moment so comparisons will wait.

                Beau
