This comes from member Dan Sherman
“You may remember this DVD from my talk on Wagner recordings which mentioned that the whole Solti Ring was on a single Blu-ray DVD as part of the deluxe set of the Ring (selling for about $250).
It is out now on Amazon as a standalone product for about $60. Sound is terrific and it is very easy to navigate.
It is amazing how far we have come from the days of LP when this set was priced at around $600 in today’s dollars (assuming $8 per LP in 1975, when I bought my set with – I think – 17 LPs)”
Imagine Das Rheingold with no breaks in the recording! This set is completely remastered and is on one BluRay Audio disk containing the complete Ring cycle remastered and presented in 24bit High Fidelity Pure Audio. Libretto included, AUDIO ONLY – does not contain the video “The Golden Ring” as was erroneously reported.

If you don’t already have this set . . . .this is a golden opportunity. There are several reviews of the set on the Amazon site from person who seem to be very well versed in the specifics on remastering, etc.
