It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: Bach box sets

As you can see by the size of the Rilling set reommended there's an awful lot of Bach.

If the object is to discover Bach's music then for the equivalent cost you could buy more than a year's subscription to e.g. Tidal, explore the Bach repertoire there (including new releases as they are added weekly) and then just buy those that take your fancy.

The problem with huge boxed sets is the uneveness of performances that may exist and that getting the most recommendable performance/recording of a given work will be pot luck. You also will not discover different but equally valid approaches to the music. Furthermore my experience has been that you may end up simply working your way through such large sets as a kind of task without really becoming engaged with the music except here and there.
