      With one exception*, all of the Tom Petty's Hi-Res downloads have excellent masterings.

        With 2 exceptions, yes.
        Exceptions:
        Mojo Tour 2010 (2010)
        Songs and Music from She’s the One (1996) {2014 Reissue}
        I may have gotten 'Mojo Tour 2010' elsewhere. I don't remember.
        I got my favorites from HDTracks. I bought most of the others from Pono when they had that final big sale, IIRC.

      As far as dynamics go, they are in the range of DR11-DR14. * 'She’s the One' is DR9.

        I recall reading that Petty regretted doing that soundtrack and disavowed it. Did it get an actual remaster like the rest of his albums? If not that would explain why it’s not up to the quality of the rest of them.

        That looks likely, @Merrick . It has the same DR as the CD. It has a release date of 2014 while most of the catalog is 2015. Looking at HDTracks, it is the only one I noticed that is no longer available.
        The other albums that are not 2015 are dynamic:
        The Live Anthology (2009)
        Mojo Tour 2010 (2010)
        Hypnotic Eye (2014)
        Greatest Hits (2016)

      Hey thanks, Dino! I think you're spot on. The standard version of the album has got to be a more recent digital reissue.

        It makes me wonder, who did this and why? Did Tidal do their own mastering? That might be a thing. I have not heard of that, though. Did MQA provide the Standard mastering? It kind of smells like it. The MQA is going to sound a lot more dynamic (hence better) by comparison to this unique(?) Standard mastering.

        I didn't come out and say it in my post, but I wondered the same thing! Is Tidal giving MQA a leg up by cherry picking bad masters for equivalent offerings? Certainly possible

        Zappa Family Trust REALLY did things right on the CDs that were remastered in 2012.
        Some 2012s are just RYKO rereleases. (lukpac lays it out in the link.)

        Only one way to find out for sure. :)

        @spwath 's question made me think: Big D was given a spot on SBAF to keep him from making noise all over SBAF. Later, Marv made a spot on the internet to have a place away from the noise on SBAF.

        That makes sense to me, @landroni . I used to search the Mike and Jason threads by their user name and read those posts. I got lazy when @zonto started putting Jason's chapters here. Plus, sometimes I get caught up in reading stupid posts that follow.

        @Dino, I kind of read it that way. That's why I shared the last chapter through profile instead of in the Schiit Signal thread which has now kind of served its purpose re: Vidar and preamps.

        I have a couple ideas for more substantive posts in the works for power cables, etc., but honestly I'm getting tired of the site right now due to all the randos and the Eitr thread. Having @k4rstar back has helped.
