if i'm not mastering myself, i don't aim anywhere other than not getting any clipping or distortion during production.

if i'm mastering myself (for cd/dvd release), i hardly ever go higher than -18dB lufs for classical music; peak (assuming there is no isp) is mostly -0.3dBfs.

mastering for broadcasting is another topic, as well as for playback on pa systems or for backing tracks - and i'm not yet even talking about streaming or vinyl...

short: times for a single master that does it all imo are long gone!
