The "bickering about the dynamics of CDs" could be partly due to the
production used in lots of CDs - there is often a tendency to
overcompress popular music (in particular) to ridiculous levels,
reducing the dynamic range considerably.

Just rip an entire album by a band like POD (or many others) and have a
look at the wave files. Chances are that the wave peaks will be almost
constant throughout.

It gets very tiring on the ears to listen to some things for this reason.

Well, it seems likely to me that waves outside the range of audible
frequencies could interfere with each other (beating effects, etc), such
that they alter the audible sound.

It probably doesn't make a lot of difference though to the average
listener. For example, my girlfriend is more than happy to listen to
tunes on a car radio that sounds like a distorted old phone headset speaker.
