As Audioguy wrote, both the Acoustic Sounds and Music Direct websites now say the box set won't be shipped until September, 14th. I realize delays can happen for all sorts of reasons but they should have notified people who placed orders. Also, why did they wait until the day it was supposed to ship to move it back three months? They had to know at least a few weeks ago that it wasn't shipping on June 18th.
At least MD doesn't charge your credit card until they ship. What's interesting is that the five individual titles are currently scheduled to be shipped in July and August, so maybe it's just that extra 6th disc that's holding up the shipping of the box set. This may change my game plan.
Many Thanks! Gerry.
yes, I did notice as well that the individual 5 titles are slated to ship earlier than the Box Set. My understanding is that the Box set is a limited edition.
Due to the new release dates for the individual titles and box set, I cancelled my order for the box set and ordered the first three discs that are scheduled for shipment on July 3rd. I don't wait for the box set and I saved some money in the process.
The first three titles are by far my favorites. I don't absolutely have to have the fourth title on SACD, I don't know about the new/5th title and it's anyone's guess about the bonus compilation title. Obviously, I won't get everything included in the box set but I'll save about $100.
