    But I am speaking about loudness compression. Yes, vinyl actually has LESS dynamic headroom compared to CD but "loudness war" resulted in "bratwurst" style loudness characteristics. There is as site which compares loudness of various releases and it is going worse. The reason - people "hear" music more than "listen". For background listening, large dynamic is uncomfortable.

    Also, there is one less known issue with valve/transistor amps. If valve amp gets overloaded, it clips softly. Heavy feedback transistor amp clips sharply AND it has a long ringing transient, it means that recovery after clipping takes longer time. This sounds "dirty".
    I think that is what I said. Time to move on. This post is not about High Fidelity or ham radio.
