I have always liked Yepes (well, since the Eighties), but you can always have too much of a good thing. I've only ever listened to my Bream boxset once.
The problem is a lack of time and also the fact that you have to deal with physical disks. I solved all of my problems by buying a fast CD drive ($60), and ripping all of my CDs, 1200+, to Apple Lossless format in iTunes.
I then bought a long optical cable and hooked it from my iMac into the DAC input on the back of my Accuphase CD player which is one of the sources in my two channel system. With Apple's Remote iPhone app, I can play everything on my stereo without ever touching a disk.
The real advantage of this setup is that I can set iTunes to down sample the CDs to 128kbps and fit all of them on my iPhone so I can listen to music on the go.
It's still over fifty days worth of music! I have the Williams and Bream boxes and dip into them but I've never tried to listen to one CD after another. At some point, I have to stop listening to go and try to play the guitar.
