Sony Walkman "Dynamic Normalizer"
Just picked up a Sony NW-A45 Walkman. Am happy with it but like all of Sony's portable music players the volume output isn't quite as loud as I'd like it to be sometimes. There is a feature called "Dynamic Normalizer" which is supposed to level the overall volume between songs when in shuffle play mode. In regular mode, it boosts the volume enough for my liking.
My question is this: is this feature a sort of gain boost or is it a dynamic compressor? It doesn't seem to compress the dynamics to my ears, but merely boost the overall level. Do you agree or disagree?
