I have high hopes for the new album quality.
Not that they’re necessarily the same team, but the people behind the live show releases mix the multi tracks to DSD, which is a definitely a commitment to sound quality. They offer DSD to purchase as well as every other format.
When the early albums were remastered, they used Plangent Process, so clearly people at the top of the organization care enough about sound quality to pay for a remaster that fixes subtle timing fluctuations.
Jon Landau caught flac for The Brendan O’Brien production of Magic that people complained about online for overcompression and crunchy sound. I think they learned a lesson that people do care about Sonics. (I was of those complaining and it’s actually interesting to hear how the DS and it’s evolution sometimes makes even bad recordings musical.
And if nothing else, just getting true 24 bits is a big part of full color sound.
