I recently got a show of the Smashing Pumpkins which was known to circulate but neither on the SP hub nor on torrent sites.

From what I know it should be from the 32 kHz DAT referenced on this page :
http://www.splra.org/wiki/index.php?title=Tsp2000-01-18
It's shouldn't be the DAT-3>Flac transfer but the DAT-?>CD-R one.

However the SA and FA of my version don't look very natural.
There's no cut off at 15 kHz but something's clearly missing.

Here's a link to an extract of about 15 seconds :

And some screenshots of FA and SA.
I'm really not comfortable with it so I hope I made it the right way.

that looks lossy for sure to me

looks like a lower quality MD (atrac) gen in the lineage

yep
the spectrum above 15kHz looks really bad to me
not at all like dat 32 kHz posted on this forum
maybe its the md version in fact...
