Where might one find a list of SACDs of jazz recorded via DSD?
You could also try sa-cd.net
sa-cd.net was very good, but the owner turned it into hraudio.net which is a flop, and I don't go there anymore. Neither it seems do many other names I recognise here.
I should also caution: every SACD box has the DSD logo printed on it. That does NOT mean that it was recorded in DSD ... it just means it is stored on the SACD in DSD, which is the native format of SACD discs. Finding out which recordings are actually recorded in pure DSD is very difficult. At one time, sa-cd.net used to publish this information, where the label made it available. Then, people only wanted to buy those discs, and the site owner removed the information from the site (perhaps because it was hurting his amazon click revenue? Who knows?) Anyway, you should also distinguish between stating whether you are seeking:
a) Analog Jazz recordings that have been converted to DSD directly
b) Recent DSD recordings
I have quite a few of (a) which have wonderful sonics
"That does NOT mean that it was recorded in DSD ... it just means it is stored on the SACD in DSD". I guess that would make sense understanding that an analog jazz recording of Miles Davis from 1966 could not have been recorded using Direct Stream Digital because it did not exist in 1966, but a newer say 2006 recording cand be made digitally using DSD.
For about the last 10 years, Jazz on SACD has been recorded via DSD.
Search eBay and look over every disc of interest. On the back of jewel case, a DSD insignia, will be present.
The following site lists all known SACDs and BD-As:
It is indexed by genre. It is a gold mine anyone interested in SACD should know about.
