Large orchestral DSD from San Francisco is among the best of my several thousand hirez recordings.  I pictured the Mahler 2 below, but really ANY of the SFSO DSD recordings are great:

Those are great recommendations, Tyson, but what I had in mind was ordinary 16/44.1 CDs.

Ah, sorry!  Hmm, for 16/44 its tough because I haven't listened to any standard res recordings in so long.  Just going off memory, I'd say the set of Shostakovich symphonies conducted by Barshai:

I have the classical recording Russel engineered and it images better than almost all of the other classical recording I own primarily due to the miking technique that Russel used. Maybe he will chime in and explain why it sounds vastly superior to the multi-miked pan-potted approach used in so many classical recordings.
Russel?
