You can't get a " warm " sound from a cd like you can from vinyl.


One of the reasons Zappa so fondly welcomed and embraced the digital medium was because of its promise of a broad dynamic range, which extended to +96 db. So now his albums, freed from the constrictions of vinyl, no longer needed to have the life squeezed out of them by compression. So CDs gave Zappa the full amount of range that he wanted. But he didn't always use that range to its fullest potential.

Stereo was relatively new and the mastering engineers simply did know how, or did not want to deal with rock and roll, so they just set the disk cutters on "autopilot" and walk away until the album side was finished. All bass frequencies below 100 Hz were channeled into the center because it would otherwise make the stylus (phonograph needle) jump out of the groove. Ask anyone who has put months of hard work into perfecting the sound of an album, only to be horrified when they hear how the final pressing had butchered and mangled the glorious sounds they had recorded into a thin, lifeless and muddy sounding piece of garbage![/tt]...[/quote]<br><br>ironically, you left out the last line:<br><br>
