      I've heard his recording of the Burmese Maha Paritta Pali. Having stayed in US for many years, he does try to make his pronunciation "international", though with an obvious Burmese accent. There are only a few places where he slips into the Burmese pronunciation. It's not very singsong in manner, and he seems to make great effort in accuracy. It's probably good enough if one wishes to have a feel of Pali pronunciation.

      > hi. MP3 files of some paritta and other chants by Ven. U. Silananda and others are available on Buddhanet. Pronounciations in these are correct. Entire tipitaka may not be available on net in audio format. But some chantings are sure available. They can give a lots of idea. You may not need entire tipitaka for learning pronounciations. If you are able to learn how to pronounce all letters, a few chantings should be enough in my view.
