“High Definition Vinyl” has moved closer to a turntable near you. In 2016, a European patent filing described a way of manufacturing records that the inventors claimed would have higher audio fidelity, louder volume, and longer playing times than conventional LPs.
The HD vinyl process involves converting audio digitally to a 3D topographic map. Lasers are then used to inscribe the map onto the “stamper,” the part that stamps the grooves into the vinyl. According to Loibl, these methods allow for records to be made more precisely and with less loss of audio information. The results, he said, are vinyl LPs that can have up to 30 percent more playing time, 30 percent more amplitude, and overall more faithful sound reproduction. The technique would also avoid the chemicals that play a role in traditional vinyl manufacturing. Plus, the new-school HD vinyl LPs would still play on ordinary record players.
Now I'm glad I kept my Moms old stereo, waiting for the high def 8 track and tracking matchbook to stick in the side.
I just got a new record player to listen to my very old record collection and my hubby's Scottish highland music (inherited), so
And I've got a couple of collections of 8 track tapes too, so let's do it.
I just have to wash all the records with scrubbing bubbles, then Bob's your uncle.
But, yeah, nothing beats the real thing JR & Rog.
I'd love to hear that Scottish highland music to cop influence from. I've got 3 different project albums I'm working on and could use the diversity. I'm a HUGE fan of Celtic stuff.
The collection belonged to his highland dancing aunt and she would always play the records when we'd come to visit, so now we have the collection. Once we move to our new home, in 2 weeks, I will have a look at how dirty they are and maybe you can help me learn to record them on my iphone and how to convert the file so I can upload it here for you.
