Does anyone here know if Dire Straits Brothers in Arms was recorded on a 3M digital recorder @ 50kHz sampling as per Ry Cooder's Bop 'Til You Drop and Borderline? There were no sample rate converters when these CDs were first released and rumour went that "conversion" meant run the analog outputs of the 3M machine into the inputs of the Sony 44.1 kHz machine. Not great for sound. Were the new remasters of BIA done with a sample rate converter so we have a DDD recording as advertised, rather than a DAADD. I can't help noticing than these 3 albums are incredibly bright and the midrange sounds sort of wimpy - is this improved in the new versions.
