    It would be something else if this meant that pressings could accommodate greater bandwidth, and that music is going to be transferred without excessive compression. On top of that higher quality pressings without the need for extortionate pricing would also be welcome.

    However, I just can’t see it.

    A lot of silliness in this thread.

    Isn't there one in Audio Hardware?

    There's dozens of threads here that examine every aspect of this question.

    I saw this thig about records that are being touted a HD vinyl in which the stampers are cut using lasers. It's all in the works and progressing at this moment. Regardless of the fact that it isn't off the ground yet it is another approach to making records that at least piqued my curiosity. Note that in the source is shown to be high resolution files with no mention of source tape of any kind. At least they are being honest about that.

    I'm not passing any judgement until I hear one, should they ever actuallly be produced but I admit I'm curious since it's a new way of doing things just because it's a new approach to me.

    They also show no titles as being in the works either. Apparently I found this in early days and they really are just trying to get this project off the ground.

    Here's the link in case any of you are at least curious enough to peek in the door.

    HD vinyl is already here.

    This is what my mofi discs read on the back cover:
    "Specially plated and pressed on 180 grams of High Definition vinyl"

    This would still be AAA, as far as i can read analog tape / analog mixing and analog mastering is still possible.

    The technology talked about here only concerns the way the master stamper is done using a 3D model of the groove
