Here's the vinyl page here
http://www.discogs.com/Nottz-Raw-x-Asher-R...release/2951117




Now, when I listen to this, I notice is sounds worse than the 128kpbs originally released format, and when I use replaygain, all the songs have like over -10dB, where as the original mp3 sourced version does not.Could anyone explain this to me so I could better understand why is this so?

(I didn't listen to your file, because I'm at work...)

What's your question? You're wondering why the vinyl sounds worse than the MP3? Maybe because it's analog vinyl! wink.gif Maybe it was recorded (digitized) from a cheap turntable/cartridge?

Some audiophiles love vinyl, but to me, MP3s ripped from CD normally sound much better than vinyl. (Most of my MP3's are higher than 128kbps, and all of my vinyl is very old... But even in the old "vinyl days", most records did not sound that good.)

That depends on how loud it was recorded, if there was clipping, and if it was normalized, etc. Did you do the vinyl transfer, or was it done by someone else? The mastering might be different too.

I downloaded and looked at/listened to the first track - whoever did the vinyl rip smashed the living hell out of it with a post-rip limiter, or - probably more likely - had the gain of their sound card set way, way too high for the capture.
