Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped

>Then again you can listen to a modern CD recording, sigh at the poor dynamic range and decide that

Another perpetuated urban myth:

"The dynamic range of vinyl... is somewhere around 80 to 120 dB. The dynamic range of CDs...[is] around 150 dB

I think the meme is that the modern dynamic range compression is in the mastering not the medium limitations (I make no comment on the accuracy of this beleif)
