    It looks like a big discount, but that's just because of the inflated list price. This cartridge (the AT311EP) has also been priced a bit lower on amazon for most of the past six months.

    Looks like normal discounted selling price is about $80. So not that much of a real discount.

    Looks like this deal sold out, so they posted another:
    Anyone familiar with these? I've been thinking about getting active noise canceling phones, but never really heard about in-ear ones.

    These are tuned too much towards bass for me (I prefer neutral), and they can get annoying if work for hours...but a great deal at the price...

    Robert Shaw and The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra perform Orff's Carmina Burana on Telarc SACD: $7.42

    I received a copy from an european seller and it's a terrific sounding disc (and a legendary performance).
    Less than $8? Even more terrific! :)

    Thanks for the tip. I just picked up a copy in the Marketplace for $7.15 shipped.

    Amazon lists the wrong performers (Ray Manzarek, Philadelphia Orchestra).

    Been listening to this over the last couple of days of it arriving. Really liking it! Nice sounding discs too. Worth a bump so others can share...$7 on Amazon.com marketplace..it's also about £6 on Amazon UK marketplace and shipping is a bit cheaper there for some international buyers. So do a trial run and see which works out best for your country :)

    You're very welcome. Just crank that SACD when the neighbours are away and enjoy it!

    They just don't have the knowledge on how to do it properly, disgraceful outcome. Another reason to be patient and seek out used copies. Queen always sounded great on vinyl and it looks as though they will never top those EMI and Elektra pressings sadly.

    Not for international buyers.

    Items:USD 6.47
    Shipping & handling:USD 14.95
    Total before tax:USD 21.42

    But still works out a bit cheaper than Amazon.co.uk where it's the equivalent of $23 shipped.

    A couple may be the older discs Ivan, Vic Anesini IIRC did not master Amigos or Borboletta. Hopefully I am wrong.

    Thanks Barry. I'd assumed he remastered the entire catalog, but I suspect it's me who is incorrect. In any case, I don't own Amigos or Borboletta, but it looks like I'm about to.

    I bet the set will not have masteing credits so the only way to tell will be via a computer, let's not go there. Enjoy the Santana.
