I've been listening through the stereo track on the Donald Fagen The Nightfly DVD-Audio disc. My reaction: The sound of this disc is absolutely incredible. I am stunned. My previous "reference" DVD-Audio discs included Fleetwood Mac Rumours, Steely Dan Two Against Nature and Everything Must Go, and Eagles Hotel California. Well, I think The Nightfly beats them all. And you know what? The Nightfly has the lowest sampling rate of them all, clocking in a "mere" 48 kHz. Upon reading the back insert for The Nightfly, it is so easy to cast eternal damnation on Warner for not going full throttle with a sampling rate of 192 kHz. Well, in a slightly modified form of what Boston said repeatedly with their first album, listen to the disc! Now this is what every disc should represent. Not specs., formats, or new-fangled mastering techniques to boost this or hide that. No, just good mastering that delivers good music in all its glory. I view good mastering as how Bill Low at Audioquest views cables. The best mastering is no mastering (well almost). Don't tinker. Just give us the master tape, thank you. I listen to The Nightfly, especially in considering its paltry sampling rate of 48 kHz, and think that they just gave us the music. There is no sonic signature. It's just pure, unadulterated music. Again, I am stunned. Everything is so clear. Thank you, Warner. Thank you, Mr. Ludwig. And, of course, thank you Mr. Fagen.
