I hear you those were great times looking back now.

Most of the major studios were using your old basic Digi 888/24 converters or the Sony 3348. Some producers had their apogee AD8000 rigs. And then some higher end productions were done on 2 inch tape.

But the end result you hear is just great productions and artists, recorded and mixed by some of the best engineers at the time, in some of the best studios of the time, mastered by engineers that by then had a ton of experience in mastering big budget records.
