>>48689405 When cutting a lacquer or copper master, the groove depth and the groove width are inter-related. The deeper the stylus cuts, the wider it's cutting too.
Normally, people are looking to get their LP sides as long as possible. But the longer the side, the more revolutions you need to fit all the material. The more revolutions for a side, the more grooves per inch need to be cut. The more grooves per inch, the narrower you need to make the groove (as well as making the lateral groove excursions narrower by lowering the level and/or removing bass information). A narrower groove is a shallower groove.
So what I'm saying is that for an LP, making the groove really deep (and wide) isn't usually an option. Also, the deeper the grooves are, the more difficulty the electroplating guys will have pulling a good father (father, right? Steve?) or stamper off the lacquer or copper.
>>48689696 >The dynamic range of vinyl, when evaluated as the ratio of a peak sinusoidal amplitude to the peak noise density at that sine wave frequency, is somewhere around 80 dB. Under theoretically ideal conditions, this could perhaps improve to 120 dB. The dynamic range of CDs, when evaluated on a frequency-dependent basis and performed with proper dithering and oversampling, is somewhere around 150 dB. Under no legitimate circumstances will the dynamic range of vinyl ever exceed the dynamic range of CD, under any frequency, given the wide performance gap and the physical limitations of vinyl playback. > Under no legitimate circumstances will the dynamic range of vinyl ever exceed the dynamic range of CD, under any frequency, given the wide performance gap and the physical limitations of vinyl playback. Google is your friend in science, asshat.
>>48690295 lol, and that scientific fact is in regards to CD as a digital format. Some modern digital formats leave CDs in the dust. Vinyl snowflakes aren't fond of their emperor getting called out for prancing around in public nude.
People who spend money on physical media in 2014 are insufferably idiotic.
