    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!

    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.

    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...

    Randy,

    These two recordings are amazing. I do agree DSD "can" sound great, especially when mastered as they did with Ms. Stanley. My biggest problem with any digital recording is how well they master and these two you list are as good as they come.

    Too many recordings these days are just "remasters" of prior crappy recordings and whether it is hires or DSD remasters it still sucks.

    I jumped all over these two recordings when released on NativeDSD and am glad I did.
