Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs used to remaster vinyl records at half speed. This considerably improved the quality, and the records retailled for around 25 - they're well worth tracking down, as they can be obtained for more or less the same amount, depending on the album (e.g. Sgt Pepper will go for more like 100, while "Crime of the Century" would go for 5 or so).

Since MFSL are doing CDs, then half-speed mastering is pointless, and 24-bit remastering only works so far on a format that is essentially 16-bit, so they've come up with ways to improve the quality of the CD itself. I haven't heard one, but I'd suspect that DVD-audio is superior, audibly (even if the media doesn't last as long!).
