Dynamic range in recorded music

The evaluation of "audible" dynamic range isn’t easy at all : should we measure between peaks and average, or between peaks and quiet passages, what time resolution ? Should the new BS.1770 loudness standard also be used for this kind of measurement ?

An interesting proposal from Richard Tollerton here. But it requires LabView runtime. Maybe I’ll do the same in a VST, it would easier to use.

Also have a look at Hydrogenaudio here and here.
