High Definition Vinyl is almost hereCan't Wait
I didn't know records weren't already HD, being analog and all.
The HD vinyl process involves converting audio digitally to a 3D topographic map.
And what would the LP Crackle sound like in HD.
30% more amplitude is +2.28dB... Almost 3dB more dynamic range!
Would they be charging a premium price for this so-called HD Vinyl?

Ignoring all the audiophile-speak, i wouldn't call the whole thing bullshit per se.

They can be fun. But coming up with new vinyl standards? Just... why? There is exactly zero reason for it, other than taking money from people who have too much of it.Edit:If some people can't stand digital for some weird reason, they could instead invent some new high-speed tape standard. Go for "HD Tape" or something. Good tape sounds excellent and is quite practical. But vinyl? Seriously, come on. This isn't about audio anymore. It's about the gadgets themselves.
