    HD vinyl makes as much sense as 'digital speakers'.
    Don't you just hate it when you cannot detect where the post ends and a signature line begins?

    30% more amplitude, AND 30% more playing time? Surely it'll skip like buggery.

    Ok for Kanye West fans, they won't notice any difference

    Well I've read the blurb and, discounting the obvious fluff and evangelism of a new idea, I don't think it's a bad idea. Laser cut ceramic stamps seen a step forward, and no waffle about digitals anywhere. Agreed the crap about total elimination of radial vs tangential tracking error is somewhat embarrassing, but worth suspending disbelief.

    This isn't new, I remember reading about it a couple of years back. It makes sense to me, you should get a much more accurate pressing. Not that it is a pressing anymore but that's the whole point isn't it? Imagine records with no off-centre holes. If I was still into vinyl I'd be quite excited about this, although I wouldn't really want to consider buying my collection all over again.

    Except for Dark Side Of The Moon. Isn't there some rule that says you have to own every version of that?

    I don't own even one version of it. I know the album well though because years ago the students in the house next door played it incessantly one summer.

    Yup, bollox to it. As soon as you apply any form of digital processing to vinyl, you're no longer listening to a true analogue sound, which consequently, adversely impacts on the music. Fact: Every applied 'process' in the recording or replay chain imparts a sonic signture.

    So leave vinyl alone and keep it pure!
