mastering quality on 'hi rez' releases, 24 bits for *this*?

This is a thread to gather a few posts from a few other threads, and continue discussion on a dedicated thread. Mainly about data gleaned from rips of DVD-A and 'laserdrops' of SACD releases. I've primarily done them for stereo tracks. What I find is that 'high rez' two-channel masterings are hardly 'safe' from loudness wars-style mastering (much compression/limiting), though rarely if ever do I find the massive clipping found on some modern CDs.

Do you have any samples from the recent MVI discs - I'm thinking of Rush's Snakes and Arrows release on the MVI, which contains a 5.1 mix and a 2 channel 24 bit stereo mix? I'm at work, can't download and rip anything now, but would be curious to see the result in terms of waveform.

The cd of Snakes and Arrows sounds terribly smashed and slightly distorted in some spots.
