[...]  So in some of Langgaard's works, you have a feeling of "but I can do that too".

This. I wonder where his musical mind would've taken him if he wasn't handicapped by jealousness.

This feels like eisogesis rather than exegesis, to this listener/composer.

Is the Dacapo symphony box a space saver box with sleeves or 7 plastic jewel cases in a paper case?

Space saving, yes, definitely. Sleeves? No. It's a totally ingenious -- well, very fancy -- little fan-system. Not simply sleeves, though.

My Dacapo box of the symphonies has the discs in cardboard sleeves, nothing ingenious.

Ah yes, I'd forgotten about the intricacies of the construction. But the simple answer is: BUY IT!
