Re: The VINYL Thread!

From the research I did a few years ago, laser turntables seemed neat but ultimately a gimmick that wasnít worth the extra effort required to get the best results; in particular, lasers need records to be in pristine condition, otherwise the dirt gets interpreted as sound, and unlike a standard stylus, a laser canít push dirt particles out of the way, so when a record already sounds bad, it sounds even worse with a laser.

That makes a lot of sense. Maybe in the future AI will be able to distinguish dirt from sound. Iím sure it could do it for short disruptions. Iíve seen expensive outboard real-time click/pop suppressors that can do it.
