Yo-Yo Ma, as ginormous box set

Here's a box set I won't be owning... at least, until my next Powerball win.

Sony is putting out a Yo-Yo Ma set with his complete recordings. That's 90 CDs. And this thing ain't put together with balsa wood and Bubble Yum. The set comes in a velvet-lined box with a 312-page hardcover book.

And here's my favorite part. As some of you might know, reviewers often receive free copies of new releases. For the sake of scholarship. But Sony, naturally, can't do that with a project this expensive. Instead, Sony is offering the "friends and family" discount record company workers receive.

That means instead of paying the standard list price of $789, we experts could receive the box for $475.
