Very interesting Douglas, I know now why my ears start to whistle when listening to recent CDs. All the buried distortion due to limiting is to blame and I thought it was just down to my advancing years! Pity the presentation had to be rushed at the end, I wanted more! Glad I held on to my original Beatles LPs, but streaming has become of more of interest to me after watching the video.

At the worst of it, several thousand recordings were made with 0 to 3 db of dynamic range. As the video shows, about 30% distortion... and people wonder why pop music gives them headaches.
