I'm still interested as to the Sony Japan SACD remasterings of Columbia classical recordings, especially Bernstein's N.Y. Symphony Mahler series. As I mentioned before, the Mahler #2 seems to have hard driven strings on my copy. Anybody else have Sony SACD copies of the series and hearing what I'm hearing?

This discussion about the early days of digital recording and
mastering is interesting.
I'm curious about the switchover to digital for rock and pop. The
first popular album I can recall being digitally mastered was
"Syncronicity" by the Police on A&M. I also recall it was hard to get
a good vinyl copy of Peter Gabriel's "So" that didn't have distortion
- there seemed to be something about the way it was mastered from
digital at the time.
