I second the questions.
The cost is a lot to pay in one payment - any installment options?
I'm hoping that price includes shipping.
Assuming there are a reasonable number of purchasers in the US, it would make sense
to send the sets minus jewel cases, via surface or "book bag" inexpensive freight (rather than
air ship to each subscriber - those costs are very high). Have a US based agent then ship MEDIA rate
to each subscriber.
I would love to have the set, but getting the bucks a challenge!
Best wishes, Thomas.

Thanks Rainer At least now we have a dates and "floating" price (well for
US folks). Today the 499 euros comes to $629 US.
It is not clear as to the # which will be made and it looks like it's an
advance purchase with payment due when the set is ordered, right?
BTW, the link you gave was to the Gallery. The images there have stars due
to "votes". What are the votes for, if I might ask.
I have another question that I couldn't find answer to looking at all the
new material on the BE site: There is mention of MOVIES being included. Yet
it is a 40 CD set. Will there be a DVD among the discs or are all CD?
The graphics do look great!
And I can't find the SHIPPING costs since they are always extra and when
you ADD the item to a Shopping cart it has all the words in German.
Thanks! I'm sure others would like these answers too.
