Since it is unlikely you ever heard the pre-normalized master, how do you know it wasn't always muddy?

only one answer to this question -- don't share your shows...with anyone
...or do a better job mastering in the first place.

Bingo. That's why I started sampling in 5.6Mhz 1-bit DSD, downsampling to 96Khz, 32-bit float, and doing all of the processing in 32-bit float. This eliminates the requantization errors. Once you're done with the project, downsample to the appropriate frequency and integer bit rate -- and you've created the best sounding outcome possible.

I only perform peak normalization -- which always preserves dynamic range and never applies compression.

I wouldn't be opposed to this.
