Notes & Reviews:

The Karajan Edition comprises thirteen boxed sets containing official remasterings of his finest EMI recordings made between 1946-1984. This 6CD set presents his first recording of the complete Beethoven symphonies from the early 1950's. Taken from original unreleased tapes, the Ninth Symphony is presented in stereo for the first time. The Warner releases of these Karajan Edition sets during the first half of 2014 marks the 25thanniversary of his death in 1989.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Finally, it is worth noting for people who are willing to listen to their music on electronic devices that this set is available for about $17 on the iTunes store, making it one of the greatest bargains in the music world. If you love Beethoven and like to hear different approaches to his music, it's very much worth getting, even if you already have one (or more) of Karajan's Berlin cycles.
