As an aside Mike-B mentioned Roger Waters - what album? I actually found the 24/192 version of Amused to Death far inferior in sound quality to the ripped CD, and only play the latter - and yes, there are places where the music makes you jump if listened to at a moderate average level - effective isn't it? I don't run for the door, though, and I have no fear for the speakers as I know they can handle it, and more (which they get to do occasionally!) The uncanny thing with that album is the spoken voice as if someone is sitting on the sofa just left of you, even though you know the speakers are in front!
....... what album ?? whoops, (note to self, read the freekin words) Yes = Amused to Death. I had the original CD ripped & then after hearing the 2015 remix/remaster on a friends system I bought it in 24/192. You didn't say if your CD is the remaster or original version, very different, but I did not keep my CD rip. My fear for my speakers is metaphorical.
