Tony Rees Tech: Transferring tape or vinyl to CD (80* d) RE: Tech: Transferring tape or vinyl to CD 06 Jan 19

Yes Richard, laser seems in theory a perfect way to go, I vaguely recall a commercial product in that area once but it vanished - see here (only problem was perhaps the cost at $15,000 or so...)

Also I should have added in my post a little above, that much of the interest in making/trading/purchasing "needledrops" among audiophiles - a group of which I do not consider myself a member, although a maintain a watching interest - stems from the belief that a pristine vinyl record, when digitized at a resolution and bit depth higher than the standard CD format - retains some magical information that is lost in reissues of the same material on CD (presuming that the original was analog in the first place).

I am on the fence about that one, but probably do not possess replay equipment capable of revealing such differences if they indeed do exist. However each to his own, once more. Regards - Tony
