New Karajan 356 disc box set
 
This would make a nice stocking-filler!

Yes, but I have a birthday coming up before then! Do we know when it's due out and how much it'll be?

There's some more information here. It's out in November and Amazon USA are asking $999.99. (At least they kept it under a thousand.) According to this link, it's dearer in Australia!

What a wonderful box set! It looks like they even reproduced the original album artwork on each disc case. I love to see things like this released, though I won't be buying it. $999 is quite a lot, though for 356 discs that's pretty reasonable at less than $3 a disc and including some very nice packaging.

And they said the CD was dead!

I love von Karajan especially his recordings of the Beethoven 200th anniversary edition he did back in 1970. If money was no object I'd get this collection ASAP. Unfortunately since I have to wait another 6 years to collect my pension, my hubby and I are having to get by on just his pension alone. But if I had money to burn I would snap up these recordings as well as a Tesla Model S auto. Oh well, at least I can still dream of listening to these CDs while driving my Tesla down a beautiful country road. :D

Keep your eye on the Amazon listing. I still remember the $25 complete Beethoven set you found for me.
