    Great DSD finds

    I really enjoy DSD, including SACD. To me it is the best sounding digital format available. So to get it started figured I would mention two of the best recordings I have heard!

    Lyn Stanley two new albums were just released in DSD256!

    Re: Great DSD finds

    Not great finds by any means but the Analog Productions DSD versions of SRV's albums are the best sounding I've heard to date.

    A real turd of a recording that's sounds the best it can on Analog Spark's SACD version of Bat Out of Hell.
    Roon->SOTM tX-USBexp->Resonessence Invicta Mirus Pro->McIntosh C47->McIntosh MC301s->Wilson Sabrinas / Rega RP8 w/ Apheta 2

    Re: Great DSD finds

    Hey Norman, Yea, I have grabbed a few of those.... Steely Dan x3, Queen x2, John Lennon x2, Gentle Giant, Supertramp, Dire Straits x3, Donald Fagan and Fleetwood Mac Japanese imports... probably a few others that escape me.... And yes, they all seems to be very good!

    Another very good DSD is Robert Len, Hope... Also DSD256...
