Here's the deal.
When we get in a project, quite often (more than not) its a digital file and **not** the CD- its the file the CD was mastered from. The problem is that is you go ahead and use that, its a file mastered for CD, which means it will be compressed as its meant to play in a car.
So I usually ask the producer to send us a file or files that aren't mastered for CD production, that lack things like EQ, compression or normalization. We can take care of that stuff on our own (if needed). The result is that we can turn out an LP that sounds better than the CD because it has less DSP in it.
Now I happen to know the studio that made the recording I mentioned earlier- and it was recorded digitally. The CDRs we heard of the project sounded pretty good, so I have to assume that United installed compression so they wouldn't have to worry about overcutting the project.
