Yeah, sorry about that! Gold is great too. I did use that for a while, but diamond is worth it if u can go the extra $$. The only thing is that it's 680 GB, takes up some serious space.Wish you two hadn't said this about Diamond, as I was trying to convince myself not to look at an upgrade from Gold to Diamond @MarcelM @Wall Art Music.
Good news is that they have sales often enough that I won't miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity. Thanks for the feedback.
Yes, I also think that they are the only provider for the diamond downloads, which I really consider. But, as an option, you also can get it on a hard drive from them, only some Euros more.Unfortunately, East West doesn't offer the Diamond version of the Orchestra as a download and they told me that they won't offer them as download in the near future.
However, I found a German company called bestservice.de which offers it as download from their own server. I bought the download version from bestservice and it is even cheaper for me (I come from Europe) than buying from soundsonline directly.
I'm happy that they offer this service because I don't want any import issues with the HDD shipped by East West. However, the Diamond Strings alone are 170 parts :O
Wow, EW must now assume that most people will not run it from that and treat it as purely delivery drive.
