I was reading a discussion in another forum about FLAC and 24/96 PCM vinyl rips. The poster was bemused that FLAC was able to get 70% compression of these vinyl rips.

My thought was that there would be more data redundancy on a 24/96 rip of vinyl for FLAC to exploit. Given that a LP might only have a dynamic range of =< 80db and a 24 bit rip allows up to ~ 144db then FLAC could be more concise as it were. Am I hopelessly off target here ?

This is not a signature !
