I was wowed when I came across this -- someone went to a lot of trouble to compile most of the print and online audio equipment DBTs since the 90's

first post here:

btw pretty sure he's wrong about Meyer & Moran only using CD-sourced SACDs, but I'll correct him on that ;

Moran and Meyer said they used "mostly" this (and each test subject got to pick whatever they felt most comfortable with, if I understand correctly):
Patricia Barber Nightclub (Mobile Fidelity UDSACD 2004)
Chesky: Various -- An Introduction to SACD (SACD204)
Chesky: Various -- Super Audio Collection & Professional Test Disc (CHDVD 171)
Stephen Hartke: Tituli/Cathedral in the Thrashing Rain; Hilliard Ensemble/Crockett (ECM New Series 1861, cat. no. 476 1155, SACD)

Mozart Piano Concertos: Perahia, Sony SACD
Kimber Kable: Purity, an Inspirational Collection SACD T Minus 5 Vocal Band, no cat. #

But with the exception of Steely Dan, Two Against Nature (which mentions "24,96"), how exactly would one go about finding this out? Even if one owned all these discs I doubt a single one reads on its liner notes: "Oh, by the way, this is from a CD resolution master." (even if that might be true in some instances, I have no idea).
