My first reply seems to have disappeared so I'll try again.

Thanks for this linnrd but not sure how to interpret these results!

I think you are implying that the CD quality version is "better"?

Surely Linn Records must be complicit in this?

RE: My 20 best SOUNDING album's, (all formats)
So dynamic range is EVERYTHING?

I think not; coherence, intelligibility, the tune for God's sake!!

Ignore the numbers; what does it sound like!!

I think you'll find that one of the best sounding albums of 2013 is heavily compressed in places. It all depends on context!

IMAO (A=Arrogant). ;-)

No, it isn't, there's also digital clipping to which linnrd was referring in this case. :-)

I'd also like some kind soul to explain Linnrd's numbers and what they demonstrate. I am rather ignorant when it comes to db's and such and would love to be educated.

Thanks in advance.

LP12 + Akurate stuff.

This Linn recording is sounding very good.
As good as the Reference Recordings I'd say.
Highly recommended;

This is my favorite track from the album, is that the clarinet whispering just before the melody enters?

INXS, Best of, especially Suicide Blonde

another stunning thing is Gli Incogniti - Vivaldi 4 seasons
