    Will it be achieved without compression? If so will current cartridges be able to track it or will modulation be reduced to compensate, resulting in lower outputs requiring more amplifying?

    "The biggest thing, however, is that HD vinyl promises to be 100% backwards compatible."

    Although quite what that actually means isn't made clear in the Techradar mini-article.
    In fact it doesn't say much about it at all.

    ... "HD Vinyl is a massive improvement over traditional vinyl records."

    And there we were being told vinyl was perfect already.

    Perhaps it will lead us into the kind of 'new era' that the Sinclair C5 did (not)!

    What about the Snap, Crackle, and Pop? Will that be High-Def too?

    As far as I'm concerned, vinyl is already high-definition!
