Your clarification is warranted....But

The Telarc Slatkin is definitely not an *original* DSD recording. (I have the vinyl and the subsequent CD). And yes, the term "DSD" has been a source of confusion since at least 1999 (when I bought my first SACDs). Many early purchasers thought the 1950s Szell recordings were original "DSD". But Telarc and every other SACD manufacturer still regard and refer to transfers of analog or PCM digital masters as Digital Stream Digital (DSD) recordings, just not "original" DSD recordings.
I have some of the Telarc PCM Transfers and they say "50kHz Master Transfer to DSD" prominently plastered on the cover. The "DSD" emblem is placed front and center all over the liner notes and on the disc itself.
But yes, the bottom line is your clarification is warranted.
