Even the German version of Peter and the Wolf?

My real problem is that minus out the stuff I have (Rachmaninov, the Tchaikovsky ballets, the DSCH 4 and some others), the stuff I'm not really interested in, and the stuff I have plenty of other recordings, there's very little I want but don't have--main thing would be his other DSCH recordings.
I've skipped Peter and the Wolf, hah. I've listened to like 55 of the 95 discs so far. That said, if you have a pretty short wishlist of stuff you don't have, you could price-compare them as individual purchases. I'm trying to think if there's, like, anything unexpectedly great. All his Prokofiev (1, 5, 7, R&J, Cinderella) is good. Oh! A really fabulous Beethoven 7 with turbocharged LSO French horns going wild.

I just got the DG120 set from Amazon Japan for about $175. I was just going to post it here, but now it is $380. Very strange. Did I get lucky due to some error? Perhaps I'll get a cancellation notice... Anyway, if it comes back up, I'll post it, with details.
It's all good...

Qobuz is generally good at the moment, with a lot of the usual suspects showing up in their "Black Friday" selection - Petrenko's Shostakovich, Engeset's complete Grieg, Märkl's complete Debussy (opinions vary on that one, I know, but it does include Colin Matthews' and Robin Holloway's wonderful orchestrations of piano pieces), Brilliant's Alkan and Pärt Editions both for under £10 - and so on.

The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra box on DG is available for under $100 at Amazon US (through Amazon International Services):

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08TZ6TD95

I thought it had gone completely OOP less than six months after it was first issued, but apparently not.

Yes, but this from Amazon's international service and not actually through Amazon US per se. But it's a good price and anyone who hasn't bought set should jump on it for sure. I personally have no interest in it, but I do rather love many of their recordings.

I ordered the same box from Amazon (and you're right, it's their international service) for a slightly higher price... it hasn't shipped yet, and my credit card hasn't even been billed; I tried to cancel it, seeing if I could get it at the lower price, but I was informed that it was about to be shipped, and 'cancellation is not guaranteed'. It remains to be seen if I receive it at all. I do know I ordered the Jochum/EMI box from Amazon International a few months ago and received it within a couple of weeks.

I've used the international service several times and haven't had any hiccups. I hope the same will happen for you.

A true Super-Duper bargain.  That said would be a bargain at double the price!

Go a dollar or so more and you'll find (mixed in with CDs aimed at kids, Playlist for Gardening, Chill with Ravel, Romantic Bach, etc) a good deal of non-British stuff including opera highlights and standard repertoire, and several Naxos Historical CDs including a few with Django Reinhardt and one with Lionel Hampton.

That Belshazzer's Feast is a great one.
