In Reply to: RE: Cassettes generally have considerably better dynamic range than either LP or CD. Nt posted by Todd Krieger on April 25, 2021 at 03:06:52
The trouble with your analysis like many such analyses is that the 90 dB spec that has been touted for CDs ever since they were introduced 40 years ago is that the spec is theoretical. In practice the actual dynamic range is much less.
It's like a company claiming its sports car can do 150 miles an hour but where you live the roads are all curves so if you try to drive over 55 you'll go off the road like Tiger.
Much much less in many cases due to the Loudness Wars that involves overly aggressive dynamic range compression. Haven't you been paying attention? The perceived dynamic range of many cassettes is consequently greater than the DR perceived on many CDs.
Dynamic Range Database (read 'em and weep)
You are saying that there is only like say 10-15db difference between the sound of a needle scraping and a loud passage? Just about everything that is said about the subject is complete bs?
