What's very sad about this is technically speaking, CD does bass MUCH better than vinyl since there are inherit limitations to what a cart can do (in fact its why I believe sub-bass gets removed via a high-pass to deal with it). But you would never know it because of the Loudness War. I have a lot more to say about vinyl and tone but I'm gonna leave that for the site. Bottom is this though (for me): CD's if mastered right can sound glorious. How many metal CDs are mastered with maximizing fidelity? Not many. Btw Mr Moose, have you heard the new Torture Division in HD? If not, please click that and download, listen, enjoy!
