    Yeah sounds like fun doesn’t it?

    Could be good with live recordings on a reel to reel.

    I'll await user feedback on the SQ and operational costs before I get too excited about it.

    I signed up to their mail list even though I don't play vinyl these days as the idea intriguing. Can't see any specs so far but I guess that will be mentioned later on.

    Whilst this isn't for me, as some capable people have expressed interest, I'm not sure calling it nonsense is quite right.

    Hmmmmmm.... The Impossible Project are involved and when they 'saved' Polaroid the initial product was so unstable and I mean images that after a few months faded away to near nothing...

    In the meantime the eager public were coerced (with good hyped up marketing) to keep buying a developing/expensive product whilst they ironed out the problems...

    I walked away after the 'First Flush' as they called it and continued taking my chances buying expired film.

    What a load of old rubbish. Proper engineers who know what to do to get a quality recording and the process involved and someone on another of these Kickstarter scams comes up with cutting straight to vinyl. Will never happen and why would anyone want to record another source to vinyl that will no doubt be very compromised.
