Dundonnell - my wants list is almost identical to yours, but I am finding that I am buying more CDs (I need the physical item, not a download somewhere in the system!) than ever before because there is so much out there.  The old 'big name' labels seem to concentrate more on 'big name' composers and musicians than on interesting repertoire, which is where labels such as Toccata, Lyrita, Hyperion, Dutton and Chandos score so highly. 
Websites like Toccata, Hyperion and Presto Classical (their physical shop in Leamington Spa is well worth a visit and is the only classical cd shop for many miles) encourage purchases of unknown works by having excerpts available to listen to - many a Toccata cd by composers I had not heard of has been bought after listening to the sound samples.
Could someone on the forum with clout encourage more of the independent companies to make sound excerpts available as a matter of course?
In the meantime, thanks to those who do!
