The thread starts:  As a public service... The following live albums are mastered with far less dynamic compression on DVD than on the corresponding CD for the same concert. (I have ripped the audio from the DVD and I listen to that now! They're great!)

  • Portishead, Roseland New York
  • Jeff Beck, Performing this Week... Live at Ronnie Scott's
  • Alice in Chains, Unplugged

The following showed no difference between the CD and DVD:
Kraftwerk, Minimum - Maximum
As examples, see the screenshots below. In each case top waveform DVD, bottom CD.
