Or special operation...

Let me Putin this way, its a special operation to eliminate Nazism  ;D

But seriously, to me, what is considered an audiophile album is one that is made with audiophiles in mind. Mofi, Analogue Productions, Impex etc

reduce the number of music instruments to the bare minimum = lot's of blank spaces in between notes = audiophile style music

Let me try to describe my world view of audiophile music?

* nice to listen to
* has reasonably wide dynamic range (soft-to-loud segments)
* music tends to have segments that spotlight or throw focus on something ?for example, spotlight vocals, or spotlight an instrument (be it guitar or piano or drum)
* mixing/mastering with minimal compression, and to a reasonable loudness.
* delivered in 24-bit format if possible

My own observation has been, the really nice audiophile quality tracks are mastered to around -18dBFS average levels.

I do need to state, I don?t listen to all genres of music? those fast super noisy tracks are not my cup of tea?
