    Hi everyone,

    I'm quite an audiophile and was listening to Random Access Memories from Daft Punk on vinyl the other day. But I noticed that on mulitple tracks, including 'Game of Love', lose their dynamic range when there are a lot of low-end frequenties in the song. At the end of 'Giorgio By Moroder' the deep sound of the click-track sounds very tight but that's only because there are no other sounds appart from that. So while listening to the album I was thinking, would the CD version be better in this case?

    I've heard the 24-bit studio masters in the past which sound fenominal but the vinyl in this case does not cut it.
    Does anyone know if the CD version is worth it in terms of dynamic range and overall quality?

    Thanks in advance!

    Alright! So apart from the fact that the CD is 48khz it should sound pretty much the same. In that case I might get the CD aswell
