Urs, I've always thought The Whole Love is one of the better sounding downloads I have, and the DR for it is similarly low, if I recall correctly. So I would withhold judgment on the basis of DR alone, and ask: How does it sound to you? Lame and compressed? Or pretty good?

I totally agree Jud. DR is just one part of the equation. Also agree about the sound of The Whole Love. I don't care that much for a Wilco, but love the sound of that album.

You're both right... I posted to fast. I did not yet listen (was too late in the evening), I was just annoyed by the "DR6". I will listen this evening, compare it against the CD and report back.

I agree, DR is just one criteria. I also have several albums, which have an "8" and sound excellent. Though I cannot recall an album with a DR6, sounding good to my ears. But enough number crunching...

Using foobar ABX tool adjusted for volume differences (track ReplayGain) I am not able to hear any differences between this and the CD.

I am using HD800 headphones (balanced cabling), Headamp GS-X mk2 headphone amp, Resonessence Invicta DAC.
