  1. Dear Rach,

    I’ve been enjoying your great postings for a while, however, this is the first time I post here to say THANK YOU! It is impossible for me reach all these classical gems without your passion. This Solti-version is one of the best Das Rheingold in history. Again, many thanks!

  2. Dear Rach,

    Thanks a lot for the hard work you are putting into this, I really appreciate it.

    I wanted to tell you about a user on avaxhome.ws AlfredoCatalani who is uploading your stuff as his rips with his links I believe. You might wanna check him out. I think that is inacceptable.

  3. Sometimes I’m amazed at how much great music there is on this site, and the rips are just…. I find it hard to put my excitement into words….

    Thank you Signore Rachmaninov! A treat indeed. Especially when you see this vinyl set selling for over $400US.

  4. hi, as the last part of ring 3 under solti, this last part also fails by time out connection, can you check it please?

  5. Thanks Rach,
    This was the first full opera that I ever bought. It was actually the Time-Life re-release.
    I still have the full box set, but it hasn’t been played in years… my turntable died 🙂
