Hi to all,

i want to buy the best version of The Dark Side of The Moon of Pink Floyd.

I don't have a SACD player.

What is the best edition?

I have see on Amazon that exist a version made on 1992, one on 1994 and one on 2003 for 30th anniversary.

What is the best?

Thanks

I have the 1992 Columbia remaster, and it sounds absolutely great.

It's also definitely not affected by the loudness war. I don't have access to the files right now, but as far as I remember, the replaygain values were quite low (I think somewhere between -2 and -5).

Edit: Just verified: the albumgain is -3.69 dB.

Are the replaygain values indicative of more headroom/less compression? How should i be reading that? I thought it was a 'perceptual' measurement.
