Summary (Full letter in box below)

Music gives many people enjoyment, but the dynamically compressed albums available today are short changing people of this enjoyment.

As music lovers we are fed up with the high level of dynamic compression used on albums available today and would like to see the immediate introduction of “HD / Unlimited” music, where the recording has not been dynamically compressed and has been optimised for sound quality.

We believe that this is the way forward to reintroduce people to music the way it’s meant to sound. The technology is there, I’m sure the demand is there, Record Labels make it happen!

      This problem is similar to display TVs in stores having all the settings maxed out to attract eyeballs with no concern for how much it ruins the image, only with music you can't fix it by simply adjusting the settings because the recording itself is at fault; it has be pre-distorted and no amount of fiddling with EQ settings will help.

      Why put all the time, money, and effort into a recording if the quality is going to be compromised in the end, anyway? We have volume knobs. Soon, shuffled songs on any playback device will be normalized to equal volume. There will be no benefit to a loud master, and more people will avoid the music with a lessened dynamic range.

      Dynamic music has more feel, more punch than compressed music. IT SHOULD BE CHANGED.
