"The Complete Studio Recordings" is a box set of all the studio albums released by Swedish pop group ABBA. It was released on 7 November 2005 and consists of 9 CDs and 2 DVDs.

The first eight CDs include each of the band's studio albums, plus all non-album singles and B-sides, and versions in Spanish, German, French and Swedish. CD 9 contains a selection of rarities, most of which were originally released after the band's heyday. Of particular interest is the rare alternate mix of "Waterloo", which has never been available on CD before. The extended mono version of "On And On And On" — featuring an extra verse and previously only available as the soundtrack to the song's video — is also released on CD for the first time. The nine CDs comprise every single studio-recorded piece of music commercially released by the Swedish group (under the name ABBA and/or Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Anni-Frid/Frida) on single, LP or CD, including alternate mixes. Edited versions and extended versions (that did not feature alternate mixes) have been excluded.

The box set also includes 2 DVDs, featuring all the promo videos ever released by the band, "The History" documentary, which covers the overview of the ABBA story, and a previously unreleased concert, which was originally a part of the television special "Dick Cavett Meets ABBA", a co-production between Polar Music International and Sveriges Television (SVT). Five of the performances from Dick Cavett are included on the DVD. The original concert consisted of nine songs, but the remaining four performances are no longer to be found in the SVT archives.

A 2006 reissue of the box omits the 2 DVDs.
