"the version I listen to most often is the 24 bit / 352.8 kHz DXD version transferred from 15 ips analog tape by the team at High Definition Tape Transfers."

 

Silly numbers game waste of bandwidth, it adds nothing audible over what could be offered at a much lower data rate.

 

No worries, HDTT has you covered. You can buy a 16/44.1 version. 
 

P.S. Given that nearly all DACs upsample internally, you can change their objective performance by feeding them high sample rates.

Even sillier than numbers is worrying about the numbers and distracting from the important part of the conversation.  So back to what's meaningful...

 

Thanks, Chris!  I love Ahmad, and just bought this on your recommendation.  

 

For those who find certain records tough to acquire, as Chris notes this might be, I recommend Discogs, an excellent online marketplace for both digital and vinyl.  Virtually anything is available.  For those who purchase used vinyl--both the media condition and the seller rating (ie the trustworthiness of the person who rated the media condition) are very important.  CDs are almost always fine, as you'd expect.  On this particular LP, it is readily available brand new for <$40 shipped to the US.  https://www.discogs.com/sell/list?master_id=190545&ev=mb

 

You hit the nail on the head @PeterG

Hi Chris,

 

I just joined, particularly to say that the Ahmad Jamal album is fantastic, even streamed from the much-maligned Spotify. I am not a rabid jazz fan but I am now an Ahmad Jamal fan.

 

My meager system is a far cry from many who visit this site but I do enjoy the content you provide. 

 

BTW, I misspelled my user name and don't see a way to correct it. Any suggestion?

Hi David, happy to hear it! You can look forward to many more albums in this series. 
 

P.S. Your username has been corrected.
