I had great difficulting downloading this item. It went very slowly, and I had to do it all evening for a week. My download time ran out before I actually got it all downloaded!! So I did not get the entire Bible. Very disappointed!
The way this is made makes it tough to listen to. Since it is mp3 format it doesn't play on my older family room stereo, which is a bummer. I have the mp3s on professional/commercially made CDs as this package.
There are over 200 tracks to one cd. I have to hit my advance button on whatever stereo maybe 200 times to get to where I left off. If I want to listen chronologically I have to find a reading list elsewhere and constantly review the 9 page index to identify the disc and track # and it takes some time to set up. There are over 1259 tracks on the entire set.
The audio is very nicely done with music, introductions and multiple dramatized character voices. I only seem to replay the first 20 tracks on each cd. It is a little easier to load one cd onto the computer and place selections on an ipod/mp3 personal player for a while and change up the selections on the personal player when time permits, but it's still at tremendous amount of data.
Very Nice product, but not easy to navigate. We will look for another audio bible as time and money permit.
Unless you want to hear the Bible from start to finish without being able to pick a particular book and chapter, this is NOT for you. Useless for Bible Study, as this chunks the books together i.e. Zach- Malachi, can NOT just pick Malachi nor can you pick a chapter. NO way to get through it quickly either, fast forward seems to be the only way to navigate. If I could return it I would.
This dowload is actually 5.6 gigabytes large. I had looked for this information on different sites and could not find it before I bought. Also, the files are strangely mixed quality. Some files are 320kbps(cd quality), and some are 64kbps (rather poor quality). So, for those of you have been trying to find that information, here it is. I had read that it was a 2GB download, which would have been great since my mp3 player is 2GB large. I've managed to get an 8GB micro SD card to put in my garmin so I can listen to this in the car. That aside, I really like this product. I guess it is a matter of taste if you like dramatized, not dramatized, english accent, american accent, background music, voice only, etc. This was exactly what I was looking for. The reading is clear and very pleasant to listen to. I am very happy with this choice.
