Slower rotation speed for digitizing to reduce distortion — plausible? 2018-04-06 13:33:48 This is primarily a theoretical question — I don't have vinyl turntable at my disposal, but I'm interested to know if everybody on the Internet who digitizes vinyls does it in optimal way or it can be improved.Let's suppose we have a record that was only released on vinyl (so that digitizing it actually makes sense).The goal is to digitize it with best possible quality (that is, minimize amount of non-linear distortion when compared to the original master which we don't have).All else being equal, is there any possible benefit of spinning the disk slower than the intended speed? (modding the turntable if needed)I suppose that with slower rotation speed the needle will follow the groove more accurately since it won't have to react to high frequencies (they become lower proportionally to slowdown). And correcting the speed in software via resampling is a very accurate process as we all know, so it's not a problem if we know the actual speed with enough precision. It's also possible to deal with RIAA curves in software, too.Am I right? Or are there drawbacks which outweigh the benefits(if any)?
