I see ProStudioMasters and HDtracks have 24/88 versions of Odelay (and Guero, but I've owned the DVD-A of that for years). Anybody heard Odelay yet? Worth it. I am more and more skeptical of the value of some of these, but often there are amazing nuggets uncovered. Thanks

The real problem with "improving sound quality" of artists like Beck is that he and his production team use limiting, compression, sampling, etc for effect, so it's not like it's a master that has a lot of room anyway. 24/192 Mutation sounds slightly better than the redbook but nothing I'd pay big $ for again.

I am friends with Mike S. (aka dust bro ez mike). I could reach out to him and and perhaps find out what the tracks were laid down at if anyone is interested.

Sure, and while you're at it, find out if we can have 24 bit files from the Modern Guilt Acoustic sessions. :) I love those versions.

Thanks for this thread. MusicScope analysis of the Guero (Deluxe set) DVD-Audio indicates that there is only 16 bit data within the 24 bit stereo container. A couple of songs have steep low pass filters well below 20 kHz, but I too assumed they were intentional for effect, i.e. artistic discretion. Looking forward to learning more...

Thanks for the heads up Ted. Curious to hear from anyone who had heard the new versions
