It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

I actually like that Chailly/RCOA Mahler 3rd on SACD (still have it)

But I wonder if Chailly will get to complete his Mahler cycle with the LGO (on blu-ray video) before Nelsons takes over in 2018. I don't think he's done the Third or the First yet in this new cycle. So far, I really like a lot of things connected with the new cycle, including the sound quality (24/48 PCM IIRC), which I wouldn't describe as muddy at all. In fact, I've found the Chailly/LGO blu-rays in this newer Mahler series to be well engineered across the board. (I have symphonies 2, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9.)

Of course, I know you're aware of how DSD tends to smooth off the natural edges of the sound, so that deficiency could be a factor in your disappointment in Chailly's RCOA SACD. . . ;-)
