Quote: Originally posted by j-curve I don't agree in general with the idea that modern CD's are compressed at the studio. Um, go listen to linkin parks's hybrid theory album and Oasis' Whats the story morning glory, those are two prime examples of how bad a cd can sound when dynamically compressed. Sure, radio stations do it too because they have to. On the other hand i've heard countless live recordings done from radio broadcasts elsewhere and they sounded gorgeous.
