2001 is good, but there must be better references on vinyl cut from tape with no DDL. 24/96 hip-hop records, I have failed to find.
I don't need my hearing validated by strangers on the internet, nor am i arguing that sample rates don't have an impact on sound.

With regards to your linking DAT and DDL, again, those things are completely unrelated. You may as well include DASH, DA88, and even Pro Tools to that list of 'resolution killers'. And let's not even get into the hip hop-specific quandary of 32k 12-bit samplers and their impact on 'depth'.

What you're effectively arguing is that no worthy digital reference material existed prior to the advent of Pro Tools HD in the early 2000s. Is that your position? If so, then why the preoccupation with DAT (a storage format, and one which you've never actually used)?

Are you familiar with the concept of oversampling? Most modern DACs don't actually record the signal at 44.1k or 48k. They record the signal at much, much higher resolutions. So, there aren't really a lot of "DAC artifacts" relative to the sampling process.

Most DACs' biggest weakness is the analog section, and all the high resolution sampling in the world can't fix what's already been broken by that.
