BEWARE: This set is faulty. On some CD players occur severe tracking problems, which have been reported by several collectors. I am still having them myself. When I first had my set completely exchanged, I received another faulty disc that was definitely not playable on any CD player. The Philadelphia Orchestra still denies that there is a pressing fault. A re-pressing is not in sight.
