Part 2 : Waveform and dynamic comparaisons Waveform

The waveform represents all the 14 tracks of the album.

The 3 graphs below represent the album in vinyl versions (Ed6 và Ed7 remastered 2022) và the SACD Stereo (Ed5). There is no sign of level limiting, these three editions are very dynamic.

*
Waveform Ed6 : Vinyl
*
Waveform Ed7 : Vinyl 2022
*
Waveform Ed5 : SACD Stereo

The graphs below represent the CD versions (Ed1 và ED8 remastered 2022) và the Tidal Ed9 remasered 2022, which are less dynamic than vinyl or SACD. The yellow area shows the effect of compression with dynamic range limitation.

Waveform Ed1 : CDWaveform Ed8 : CD 2022
*
Waveform Ed9 : Tidal 2022

The graphics below represent the streaming of Qobuz (Ed2), Amazon (Ed3) and Tidal (Ed4). The dynamics of these three versions are intermediate between the CD và Tidal 2022 versions, và the vinyl và SACD. The peaks of dynamics are present, but less marked than for the SACD and vinyl.

*
Waveform Ed2 : Qobuz Hi-Res
*
Waveform Ed3 : Amazon UltraHD
*
Waveform Ed4 : Tidal Master

The graphics below represent the remastered 2022 release of Qobuz (Ed12), Amazon (Ed13) and Tidal (Ed14). These remastered versions are more compressed than the previous versions Qobuz (Ed2), Amazon (Ed3) và Tidal (Ed4). The remastered Amazon version (Ed13) is different from the remastered Qobuz (Ed12) và Tidal (Ed14) versions, with a little less compression.

*
Waveform Ed12 : Qobuz Hi-Res Remastered 2022

The remastered Amazon 2022 version (Ed13) is similar khổng lồ the previous Amazon version (Ed3).

*
Waveform Ed13 : Amazon UltraHD Remastered 2022

The SACD 5.1 version shows great dynamics like the SACD 2.0 version. All channels are exploited to lớn produce an immersion in the music in 5.1.

*
Waveform Ed10 : SACD 5.1

The Dolby Atmos Binaural version is a surprise. I checked several times, it is different from what we had obtained on the binaural tracks of other albums (ref Sting), because much more compressed here.

Waveform Ed9 : Amazon Atmos Binaural

Dynamic

Dynamic represents the ability to reproduce a wide range of sounds from the softest lớn the loudest. The target is to lớn compare the dynamics of the music và not of the media (CD, digital files or vinyl).

For our 14 editions we have obtained the following Dynamic Range (DR) :

The minimum of DR11 is good, but with a small compression for this type of music, which corresponds to lớn the CD, CD 2022 và Tidal 2022 editions. The Streaming Qobuz Hi-Res, Amazon UltraHD and Tidal Master versions have a higher DR with DR12. It is especially the SACD edition which offers the greatest dynamics with a global DR14 và a very important dynamics on all the tracks. The vinyls with DR14 are still below the SACD for the overall dynamics on all tracks.

The update with the remastered 2022 versions (Ed12 Qobuz, Ed14 Tidal Master) with a resolution of 24 bits 96 kHz are identical in dynamics lớn the ED9 Tidal version in CD quality. The Dolby Atmos version is a little less dynamic with a DR10, which is surprising, the Dolby Atmos versions being until now more dynamic. The SACD 5.1 version has the same dynamics as the SACD stereo version with DR14.

The Ed13 Amazon 2022 version seems closer to lớn the Ed3 Amazon version than the remastered 2022 versions.

As a reminder, the scale goes from 0 to more 20, but the dynamics are considered good from 12, quite good between 10 and 11, và deteriorate below 10.

Part 3 : spectrum comparisons Spectrum

The Spectrum allows to kiểm tra the tonal balance of the music (balance between treble, medium and bass sounds) and to detect process that may have been carried out during the recording, the mixing, mastering or manufacturing phases. It is also possible khổng lồ detect frequency interference issues.

The curve represents the average frequency distribution over the sample “Don’t Know Why”.

The interesting features on this curve Ed6 Vinyl (white) vs Ed1 CD (blue) are the following:

The two curves are almost superimposed on each other up to 22 kHz.The yellow arrow shows a small increase (2dB) for the vinyl in the low frequencies, also in the high frequencies (purple arrow) where the difference is very small.The green arrow shows the CD limit at 22 kHz due to lớn the 44.1 kHz sampling rate of the CD.
*
Spectrum Ed6 Vinyl (White) vs Ed1 CD (Blue)

The interesting features on this curve Ed7 Vinyl 2022 (white) vs Ed6 Vinyl (blue) are the following:

The two curves are superimposed between 100 lớn 15kHz.The yellow arrow shows a small increase (up to lớn 3dB) for the vinyl 2022 in the low frequencies (100 Hz).The yellow area shows a difference above 15 kHz, with a little more level for the remastered 2022 vinyl.The red arrows show two interferences at about 30 kHz và 40 kHz. These peaks are not present on the high resolution digital versions. There are 2 hypothesis, they are well on the original tape but they have been removed on the digital versions or they appeared during the cutting of the remastered 2022 vinyl.The purple arrow shows a lower noise level. The noise level seems to lớn be lower than the original tape jump noise present on the high resolution digital and vinyl versions.
*
Spectrum Ed7 Vinyl 2022 (White) vs Ed6 Vinyl(Blue)

The 2022 mastering of the CD (Ed8) stands out in the treble (yellow zone) with an attenuation of up khổng lồ 5 dB at trăng tròn kHz compared khổng lồ the CD (Ed1). This will have an impact on the treble and also on the voice.

*
Spectrum Ed8 CD 2022 (White) vs Ed1 CD (Blue)

The curves below of the CD mastered 2022 and Tidal Hifi mastered 2022 versions are perfectly superimposed.

*
Spectrum Ed9 Tidal 2022 (White) vs Ed8 CD 2022 (Blue)

The curves below show a different mastering between the CD (Ed1) and Qobuz Hi-Res (Ed2) with a higher treble cấp độ on the CD (yellow area) và a small difference in the bass (yellow arrow). The Qobuz version goes up in frequency well above the 22 kHz of the CD (green arrow) until 96 kHz!

*
Spectrum Ed2 Qobuz (White) vs Ed1 CD (Blue)

Below, the superposition of the frequency curves between the Qobuz Hi-Rez and Tidal Master versions is perfect. The overlay is limited khổng lồ 48 kHz for Tidal. This is due to lớn the limit of the 96 kHz sampling rate allowed for the MQA software decoding used by Tidal.

*
Spectrum Ed4 Tidal Master (White) vs Ed2 Qobuz Hi-Rez (Blue)

The curve below represents the Amazon UltraHD (Ed3) version & the Qobuz Hi-rez (Ed2) version. The Amazon edition is particular because it mixes 192 kHz và 96 kHz tracks. This sample is analyzed at the 96 kHz sampling rate, as shown by the frequency limit indicated by the green arrow at 48 kHz. The two curves merge up to 10 kHz. Beyond that, the Amazon version has a slightly lower cấp độ up to lớn 2 db at 20 kHz. This may be due to a sample rate conversion (192kHz to 96 kHz) depending on the filter used.

*
Spectrum Ed3 Amazon Ultra HD (White) vs Ed2 Qobuz Hi-Rez(Blue)

The curve below represents the SACD Stereo (Ed5) version và the Qobuz Hi-rez (Ed2) version. The curve is similar between the two versions but with a difference in the low frequencies (yellow arrow) and in the high frequencies (yellow zone) where the level of the SACD version is several db higher than the Qobuz version. This is due to the difference in mastering between the two versions. The red arrow indicates a spurious peak at 23 kHz. The attenuation above 30 kHz (green arrow) is due lớn the filtering applied khổng lồ reduce the noise boost in the high frequencies of the DSD64 conversion.

*
Spectrum Ed5 SACD Stereo (White) vs Ed2 Qobuz Hi-Rez (Blue)

The graph below represents the 2 Tidal remastered 2022 versions in CD unique (Ed9) & Master (Ed14). The two curves overlap perfectly up lớn 22 kHz (yellow arrow), the limit for CD quality with the 44.1 kHz sampling rate. The Master version goes up to lớn 48 kHz (limit for 96 kHz sampling rate). The red arrow shows a parasite frequency peak around 30 kHz. The result is consistent with the formats used.

*
Spectrum Ed14 Tidal Master 2022 (White) vs Ed9 Tidal 2022 (Blue)

The graph below represents the Tidal 2022 Master (Ed14) and Qobuz Hi-Res (Ed12). The two curves overlap perfectly up to lớn 48kHz, the limit for the 96 kHz sampling rate.

*
Spectrum Ed12 Qobuz 2022 (White) vs Ed14 Tidal Master 2022 (Blue)

The graph below represents the Qobuz Hi-Res (Ed2) with a 192 kHz sampling rate và Qobuz Hi-Res remastered 2022 (Ed12) with a 96 kHz sampling rate. We note a difference in the bass & treble between the two versions (white arrows) due to the remastering of 2022. The remastered version is limited to 48 kHz (yellow arrow) due to lớn its 96 kHz sampling rate. The red arrow shows a parasite frequency peak around 30 kHz.

*
Spectrum Ed12 Qobuz 2022 (White) vs Ed2 Qobuz (Blue)

We see the same curve for the Amazon (Ed3) and Amazon remastered 2022 (Ed13) versions. We should have different curves between the 2002 version & remastered in 2022. There is a problem in the files, the problem will certainly be corrected when you read this text.

*
Spectrum Ed13 Amazon 2022 (White) vs Ed3 Amazon (Blue)

The Amazon Dolby Atmos Binaural version (Ed11) is very different from the Amazon UltraHD version (Ed 3). There is an accentuation of the bass of more than 10 dB (purple arrow) & also the treble (green arrow). The bass màn chơi will be much higher than on the other versions. We find the limit at đôi mươi kHz (yellow arrow) due khổng lồ the encoding in Dolby Digital Plus.

*
Spectrum Ed14 Amazon Binaural 2022 (White) vs Ed12 Qobuz 2022 (Blue)

No surprise for the SACD 5.1 version, we find the same type of curves with a filtering from 30 kHz (green arrow). The yellow arrow shows the attenuation of the bass channel above 200 Hz, but this attenuation remains not very strong.

*
Spectrum Ed10 SACD 5.1Part 4 : Spectrogram comparaisons Spectrogram

Spectrogram is another representation of frequency versus time of a track. For each channel (right and left), horizontal axis represents time, & the vertical axis represents frequency. The amplitude is represented by the intensity (brightness) of the color of each point in the image.

The 2 spectrograms below represent the vinyl versions (Ed6 & Ed7 2022). The signal goes beyond đôi mươi kHz (yellow arrow). The trắng arrow represents signal và the harmonics generated by the reading of the vinyl. For the remastered vinyl of 2022 (Ed7), the two đen arrows show the 2 frequency peaks (30 kHz và 40 kHz) present on the spectrum of this version.

*
Spectrogram Ed6 : Vinyl
*
Spectrogram Ed7 : Vinyl 2022

For CD (Ed1 và Ed8 2022) & Tidal (2022 quality hifi) below , we find the same representation with a maximum frequency of 22 kHz (yellowarrow) due khổng lồ the 44.1 kHz sampling rate. The trắng arrow shows that there is no signal above 22 kHz (black area) unlike vinyl.

*
Spectrogram Ed1 : CD
*
Spectrogram Ed8 : CD 2022
*
Spectrogram Ed9 : Tidal 2022

The spectrogram of the Qobuz Hi-Res version shows a spectrum that goes beyond trăng tròn kHz (yellow arrow), the signal is present up khổng lồ 96 kHz (white arrow) due to lớn the sampling frequency of 192 kHz. The original recording was made on analog tape.

*
Spectrogram Ed2 : Qobuz Hi-Res

The spectrogram of the Amazon UltraHD version shows a spectrum that goes beyond trăng tròn kHz (yellow arrow), the signal is present up khổng lồ 96 kHz (white arrow) due khổng lồ the sampling frequency of 192 kHz. But not all songs are at this sampling rate, some are at 96 kHz and go up to lớn a limit of 48 kHz (blue arrow). There is no explanation for the mixing of these 2 sample rates.

*
Spectrogram Ed3 : Amazon UltraHD

The spectrogram of the Amazon UltraHD Remastered 2022 version shows a spectrum that goes beyond đôi mươi kHz (yellow arrow) excepted for 3 songs limited à 22 kHz due to lớn the sampling rate at 44.1 kHz (Green arrow). The signal is present up to 96 kHz (white arrow) due to lớn the sampling frequency of 192 kHz for 3 songs. But all other songs have a sampling rate at 96 kHz và go up to a limit of 48 kHz (blue arrow). There is no explanation for the mixing of these 3 sample rates.

*
Spectrogram Ed13 : Amazon UltraHD Remastered 2022

The spectrogram of the Tidal Master, Tidal Master 2022, Qobuz 2022 versions show a spectrum that goes beyond đôi mươi kHz (yellow arrow), the signal is present up to lớn 48 kHz due khổng lồ the sampling frequency of 96kHz. The white arrow shows no signal above 48 kHz. For both remastered 2022 versions (Tidal và Qobuz), the đen arrows indicate spurious frequency peaks above 30 kHz.

*
Spectrogram Ed4 : Tidal Master
*
Spectrogram Ed14 : Tidal Master Remastered 2022
*
Spectrogram Ed12 : Qobuz Hi-Res Remastered 2022

The SACDs go up above 20 kHz (yellow arrow), but a filtering is applied above 30 kHz khổng lồ reduce the rise of noise in the high frequencies due khổng lồ the operating principle of DSD64. With the filtering, the attenuation of the high frequencies is more important (white arrow).

*
Spectrogram Ed5 : SACD Stereo

The SACD 5.1 go up above đôi mươi kHz (yellow arrow), but a filtering is applied above 30 kHz khổng lồ reduce the rise of noise in the high frequencies due khổng lồ the operating principle of DSD64 (whire arrow). We also notice that the LFE track is not strongly filtered khổng lồ leave only the bass.

*
Spectrogram Ed10 : SACD 5.1

For the Dolby Atmos Binaural (Ed11) we find a maximum frequency of đôi mươi kHz (yellow arrow) due to the Dolby Digital Plus encoding. The white arrow shows that there is no signal above trăng tròn kHz (black area). The spectrogram has more small đen areas than the other versions, this is due lớn the Dolby Digital which suppresses the high frequencies that have a màn chơi below a certain threshold.
