Vinyl colorations, inherent, euphonic and inherent euphonic.
Thank goodness we now have a working link. I have combed the article
and I must say I don't see any claim that the tests show a 22 dB dynamic range.
Harmonic distortion is not a measure of dynamic range. 20% THD+N does
not have any direct corlation to the dynamic range of any system. Your
conclusion that this leads to a measured dynamic range of 13 Db is completely eroneous.
They have been used eroneously IYO?
Irrelevant. We are talking about the colorations of vinyl, inherent,
euphonic and inherent euphonic.
No. The inherent dynamic range is somewhere in the 75 dB range.
The low frrequency noise is a problem. It's seriousness is a matter of
opinion. One the one hand it leads to an arguably misleading poor
measured performance for dynamic range since most of the musical
material is spead well beyond the limited spectrum of this inherent
noise and therefore allows for one to hear musical information way
below the measured noise floor of vinyl. OTOH this does come at the
price of audible surface noise during the quietest passages. The
degree to which this bothers a listener is a function of the biases
and sensitivities of each individual listener.
But it is if one is actually considering music with a dynamic range of
65 dB being transcribed to vinyl. It can be done and has been done
with out any compression. In listening to music the accurate portrayal
of the dynamics in the music is what matters and vinyl is quite
capable of doing that with the vast majority of commercial recordings.
No it is an accurate statement. You will be hard pressed to find any
studio recordings with a dynamic range greater than 25dB much less 65
dB. You will find very few live recordings that excede 65 dB dynamic range.
That is irrelevant to my point.
Not really. I can name literally hundreds of LPs produced with no
compression that have very dynamic original material.
In some rare cases, yes.
