 A Goldmine For All Classical Listeners July 20, 2014 By A. Bannard (Acton, MA) See All My Reviews "Being a fairly young collector and not having hundreds of dollars to spend on existing CD's (though I wish I did), the purchase of this box set made complete sense. For a shockingly low price per disk, I now have some of the greatest recordings ever produced by orchestras on American shores. Being a huge fan of the Reiner era of the CSO (as well as Bud Herseth), these recordings have become the backbone of my library. The Reiner sound contrasts quite nicely with Münch's in Boston allowing for a doubly broad section of the literature to be covered with finesse. Just a handful of these recordings make the entire box set worth the money and I would recommend it to all, especially newer collectors who wish to become acquainted with former titans of American orchestral music."

 Living Stereo Lives Again May 29, 2014 By James K. (Oro Valley, AZ) See All My Reviews "This 60 CD collection has vivid sound and great recordings. The booklet is well written and illustrated and the packaging is of very good quality. I have an extensive collection of the SACD'S but these remasterings are nearly the equal of the SACD sound. In addition, there are several new unreleased recordings in the set. I also enjoyed the sampler containing some popular and classical music which comes with the box. It is well worth the asking price." Report Abuse
 Revival of RCA Living Stereo May 15, 2014 By Donald P. (Hudson, FL) See All My Reviews "With 60 discs I have not yet listened to the majority. The quality of the sound is as good as or better than what I recall of my vinyls, The music is superb. It is a real treat for me to listen to The BSO directed by Charles Munch and the Boston Pops directed by Arthur Fiedler. I went to live concerts at Symphony Hall or the Esplanade. For people like me, somewhat aged, and for the younger listeners this is a quality of sound and orchestration that is hard to find today even at a live concert." Report Abuse
