I'm getting rid of 16 multichannel classical SACDs that I've acquired in various collecting binges after deciding that I'll never listen to them or that they duplicate releases or works I already have. Most are still sealed. I had planned to list them on eBay as a lot, because I really don't want to get into sending a bunch of individual packages. But I thought I'd post here first to see if anyone wanted to call dibs on them at a great price first. I really don't want to wrestle with listing these on eBay.

Because shipping internationally is cost-prohibitive, this is for U.S. buyers only, and I'd ship by media mail.

I added the cheapest version of all of these to an Amazon cart (including discounted used copies even when mine might be new and sealed), and it totaled well over $300. I'll sell these for $150 shipped by U.S. media mail to anyone who wants them all. That price of $9.38 shipped per disc is only if they are bought as a lot.

These are recent releases of highly acclaimed performances from record labels known for excellent sound quality.
