This Taisho can be read on-line (and downloaded) from:
If you click on the 2nd and 3rd tabs, you'll be able to find up to vol 55, and the vol 85 as well. That will save you more than five grands, and can fit in 2 CDs.
I've posted this link last year, but somehow it was not published.

The (approx) correct spelling should be Taisho Daizokyo. Alas, this is not the name of a "sutta", but an entire edition of the Buddhist canon in Chinese translation which was first compiled in the Taisho era (1920s) in Japan. It is regarded as the standard edition for Chinese Buddhist texts, though it does have its short-comings. When I say that it is the Buddhist canon, I mean by this that it comprises (nearly) all Indic Buddhist texts translated into Chinese from the Han period to the Song period, contained in 32 thick volumes. There are further volumes containing works composed in China, Korea and Japan. 
Best wishes,
