Very clean appearing website and good design. A brief listening-skim tells me they sound like good recordings read by a pleasant and professional voice. A good selection too and I'm sure more will be added.

Many thanks for providing this resource.

I listened to a few recordings from MN in full on my walk today. Some points:

• The gong is a nice touch - keep it!
• The repetition format is great, not too much and not too little - keep that up!
• The sound quality is excellent - keep that up too!
• The reader, Roland Kitchen, is excellent, very patient with the repetitiveness of the suttas, has a respectful tone - keep him!
• One suggestion, if you have the bandwidth, is to have a centralized download page with download links so we can download them easier or with a download manager instead of having to click on each individual sutta to download it

Really excellent work. I look forward to more of these. This is the first time I've listened to suttas in full like this and it really has a more powerful impact compared to reading them. I was somewhat expecting this, but was still taken aback. I see the usefulness of the repetition much more clearly.

Highly recommend these. Especially if you're used to listening to Dhamma talks: these are Dhamma talks par excellence because they're from the Buddha and his direct disciples themselves.

Another suggestion would be to put the sutta numbers in the file name metadata. For example, instead of "All the Taints" it could be "MN 2 - All the Taints." This makes it easier to keep the files in order when downloaded and having the sutta number linked with the name is good information anyway.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback and we are delighted you find it useful.
I will add the sutta numbers in the file name metadata and look into whether we can provide a centralized download page.
