Esoteric, the Japanese manufacturer of super high end gear and producers of some amazing CD remasters, has released its remastering of a seminal event in the recording arts — the John Culshaw produced The Ring of the Nibelungen by Wagner. Originally recorded for Decca at the Sofiensal in Vienna with a stellar cast, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Georg Solti, these performances are considered definitive, with superb recording, no weaknesses in the complicated casting, the magnificent Vienna Phil and the white hot conducting of Solti.

The set is limited to a 1000 sets, in SACD/CD format, 14 discs, and comes in at a hefty price. $1500
