People tell and even the pros that the music is pretty much the same on all versions!!
I have the 1992 Columbia remaster, and it sounds absolutely great.It's also definitely not affected by the loudness war. I don't have access to the files right now, but as far as I remember, the replaygain values were quite low (I think somewhere between -2 and -5).Edit: Just verified: the albumgain is -3.69 dB.
Are the replaygain values indicative of more headroom/less compression? How should i be reading that? I thought it was a 'perceptual' measurement.
Say you simply reduced the volume of that recording by 9 dB in Audacity. You'd now have a file with a RG measurement of -2 dB --
I ripped the stereo "redbook" layer on the 2003 hybrid SACD and it sounds just fine.
