Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Thanks

If you want to get an idea of the ill effects of compression then listen to Metallica - Death Magnet and/or Rush - Vapor Trails. Both cds are some of the top offenders of compression. BTW, I do not recommend shelling out a dime for either of these abominations (they can be obtained though different channels).

If you go to Youtube and do a search on Death Magnetic - CD vs. Guitar Hero Version, this will give you a first hand comparison of compression.

Also, do a search on loudness wars/dynamic range database. This database has information/rating on the dynamic range of various albums. Check out the ratings for Death Magnet and Vapor Trails! :)
