[QUOTE=SeÃ¡n;2636407]That’s especially true with many over the past 10 years that apply heavy dynamic range compression and many of the latest tracks seem to be getting even worse with this.
A very good example is the beat parts of the David Guetta single “Titanium”, where it seems like the radio volume is being rapidly turned down/up between every beat , which in my opinion sounds horrible and I doubt the CD version sounds any better.[/QUOTE]
The rapid volume changes are due to over compression, a bit like when they broadcast Analog over sine wave for the radio.
I thought when the CD came out it would progress in quality, not stay at 44.1khz, not that great for music listening. And don’t get me started with mp3/4. Its a real shame the way sound quality dropped when digital came about, sure there where some specialist gear out there that had higher sample rates but no good for the consumer who just wants to listen to their music. Just take a walk around the likes of currys and you can see the level of quality hifi on sale.
