I agree with some of that but it can be uncompressed, it has been done with California, which is one of the most derided cds around apparently and the uncompressed version does sound so much better. Debating it may change attitudes, that is the point of things like the loudness wars and the drdatabase, it also helps when buying cds which ones to go for or avoid. I have seen some movement recently towards less compressed masters. Radio now has equalised volumes so it's no good making the music louder for radio. Yes vinyl is another matter, it is down to the cutting engineer how to fit it all on and not make the stylus jump off, less music per side helps a lot. CD have more DR but unfortunately it is rarely used, it's like having a car that can go 200mph and and only driving it in first gear. The problem is most music these days is not played on hifi and most people don't care about sound quality, in fact they would complain if you made their music less loud.
Personally I think there should be 2 versions of every album, one compressed for car/cheap headphones and one for hifi.
