Loudness dynamic range

What does the loudness dynamic range value mean?

The dynamic range (DR or DYN) is an indicator of the level of dynamics of a title.The higher the DR, the less the title hase been compressed (in short: increasing the volume of the lower sounds and saturate the audio signal to give an impression of power to the sound. But this operation reduces the dynamics). A DR value greater than 13 (13 dB) indicates a very good quality. http://www.algorithmix.com/en/news_tt.htm

Thanks for this info, I would also like to know what the dB value after the DR Score means, the value that I have highlighted in red?

Old Audirvana documentation indicates that the application calculates dynamics according to the EBU R128 standard (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EBU_R_128) and the Dynamic Range (DR) I mentioned earlier. These are probably the two values displayed in the window.

I confirm what I was saying. This is the information written by Audirvana in the ID3 Tags of the audio file.

Most people use the simple DR number data when they talk about album sound
or if you know that database on Internet use also the DR:
