Hello,

American rock musician Lenny Kravitz has enriched the music world with his twelfth studio album, “Blue Electric Light”.

For this review, you will find 2 versions tested: Tidal MAX, and Tidal Dolby Atmos.

A comparison of waveforms (track “Blue Electric Light”) adjusted to -15.6 LUFS integrated clearly shows the impact of limiting dynamics on the stereo version (DR6) vs Dolby Atmos (DR13).

No big surprise here: if you’re looking for dynamics, bass and spatialization, you’ll have to go for the Dolby Atmos version to get the most out of this album, especially in multichannel listening, which gives this album a much wider soundstage.

You can listen to the different excerpts to make up your own mind HERE and find all the measurements.

Enjoy your listening,
