It is interesting how this forum has developed. Previously when the F30 lost in a test, especially on performance, there were cries of umbrage, "Unfair!" "Cheated!" "Biased!"

Digital recording does not "compress" the sound.

Even Redbook CD (44.1/16) has a greater dynamic range (~96dB) than even studio analog tape (~80dB). Vinyl is good for roughly 70dB dynamic...
