Hey Quinto, I think the moderators will open up the other one after clearing it.

But wouldn't mind having a new thread, it would be a nice fresh start!

The set you posted, I might get that I have his Scottish set which I really like.

OK here we go.
 
I have a few of the Mackerras/Prague discs. Some sounded rather compressed. Not good.
His 4 discs with the Scots are much better.

A tip i can give to you is to wait till cybermonday deals or blackfriday (one of the two must apply in europe, here in mexico is cybertuesday) for prices to get a discount (if ever...)

Apple lossless is same as Flac. Soundwise.
