As far as the Mahler Cooke 10, there is a MCH high rez download available for some time from the Seattle Symphony. I purchased it from Acoustic Sounds.
At least here in the US I find it's best to order from Dutton directly at duttonvocalion.co.uk. Service is good, prices are fair and as long as you order several discs at a ...

Another keeper from the Tower Records (Japan) and ECM.
Sonically very good. I don't know enough about the DR history of this title, but as far as I can tell it has not been further compressed for this SACD. It comes in with a Dynamic Range average of 11. Clearly though, it must have had a nudge at some point in the more distant past to get that figure.
The album was recorded by Tony May at IBC Studios, London, in 1972 (same studio where The Who recorded "Tommy"). The mix from multichannel to stereo master tape may have involved the use of equalization and analogue compression, common practices when preparing a tape for LP mastering.
