All - The petition letter has now been revised. Let me know what you think, ideally through the facebook group. Please try not to burn me at the stake if there are grammar errors! Thanks   http://www.change.org/petitions/stop-the-loudness-wars-and-release-high-definition-music-downloads   P.S – 858 signatures now – carry on spreading the word.

I have been asked by a few people what my objective is with the petition and what I’m I going to do with it, for clarification my broad intentions are below. Bear in mind, it’s still very early days, which is why I intent to use the facebook group as a place to take on board peoples suggestions and advice.   Objective: To raise the issue of compression and availability of high quality downloads with major record labels and online retailers   When: Once I / others...
Hi,   I’m trying to start a petition to try and get record labels to stop the loudness wars and also to release  High Definition music downloads (24 Bit) of popular mainstream music that people actually want to listen.     The loudness war is where record labels turn the volume of a recording up to grab the listener’s attention upon first hearing.

I'm hoping my...
I've been recommended this forum by a Hifi Choice forum user, who says this is the place to come for Headphone advice! I’m thinking about spending some money on a decent Headphone set-up. I wont be buying everything in one go, but progressively, as and when I have enough money. The reason why I’m thinking of creating a Headphone set-up, is 1) I live in a first floor flat and find myself increasingly using my headphones around the house after 9pm. (currently using...
