Beatles remastered USB vs CD 2010-01-08 12:08:38 The Beatles released their "remastered" catalogue on a USB drive in 24-bit 44.1kHz FLAC.Lots of fans claim the 24-bit versions sound amazingly better than the 16-bit CDs, e.g. see the Amazon reviews...http://www.amazon.com/Beatles-USB/dp/B002VH7P4O...but we all know how reliable such subjective impressions are!However, it made me wonder if, just maybe, they didn't apply peak limiting to the 24-bit versions, hence giving them greater dynamic range than the CDs I think this is unlikely - your typical Amazon purchaser (who can't even play a FLAC file without jumping through hoops!) would probably think a quieter version without peak limiting sounded worse. But still - does anyone have one of these - or even a 30 second snippet of one of the tracks - that they could share?It would be interesting to compare with the 2009 remastered CDs.(I'm not sure it would make me buy it - why not put both the stereo and mono versions onto the USB memory stick?)Cheers,David.
