Back up yer vinyl records

June 30th, 2008 | by Boon Kiat

Here’s the latest in bit-perfect, lossless music encoding: vinyl-to-plastic audio backup.

Now, being a vinyl record nut, I was naturally excited but also aghast to find this backup-yer-vinyl-record tip in blogoshere. Excited because, well, it is a pretty cool notion. Aghast because I can just see all those out-of-print vinyl records being damaged by the gooey silicone stuff. And I am also not so sure about having my delicate record cartridge glide on the finished plastic replica.

Assuming it works, I can just imagine all the nasty crackles and pops from the replica. Anyone tried?
