The two best sounding DVD discs I have are The Police DVD Audio (this mix is awesome) and the Blue Man Group Concert Audio (very good).
I have other titles as well, some which are average (Bee Gees One Night Only), and some that are undeniably bad (e.g. Ice Cubes Video collection).
I have to disagree with your impression of NIN-With Teeth...This Dual Disc sounds great! Have only listened to the 5.1 uncompressed portion (not sure of the resolution) It's an agressive mix. Listen for the analog drums. Dave Grohl's drumming is awsome on this disc.
My other favs are
Flaming Lips-Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (DVD-Audio)
Very Very agressive mix which I am almost always in favor of. Unbelievable
Bass. Dynamic range out the ying yang!
Pink Floyd-DSOTM (DVD-Audio)
I perfer the agressive AP mix over the SACD. SQ is not quite as "clean or
dynamic" as the SACD but the mix is just better 90% of the recording IMO.
Depeche Mode-Violator (SACD)
Extremely Agressive in a good way. In one part, the sound in the rears
are "clicking" back and forth very quickly and it's like it is right in your head
and not coming from the speakers. Very Sweet!
Fleetwood Mac-Rumors (DVD-Audio)
Overall SQ is not as good as other discs however the mix is nice. Not overly
agressive. The rears are used when needed and not just for ambience.
Beck-Sea Change (SACD)
Very dynamic! Agressive mix. Overall great sounding disc (newer recording).
My favorite Who album in 5.1. Pretty agressive (not overly). Great cleanup
job on an older recording.
ALL THE Steely Dan/Donald Fagan RECORDINGS!!!
The only 2 Live discs I care for is Heart-Live in Seattle and Frank Zappa-Halloween.
The Heart I like for the overall SQ and the FZ for the performance as well.
