Awesome pics of vinyl grooves

I guess the little black "rocks" are dust particles...

Re: Awesome pics of vinyl grooves

well, thankfully it's not my Beatles Mono Parlophone.

I'm so geeky I actually have and found my 3-d glasses in a few seconds, to look at the last and in 3-d image.

If someone gets a bunch of cash they usually want a car or to go on a trip, or whatever. I wanna buy an electron microscope. Like, real bad.

Wow, looks like a flock of geese just flew by!

Seriously, it makes one reflect how absurd and fragile vinyl reproduction is. It is almost amazing it works at all, let alone that it delivers such fantastic sound.

Nevertheless I don't have an electron microscope on my Chritmas list. Since you're asking, I want a 3D printer.

I'll get you a pair of 805Ds if you get me a 3D printer. Deal?

Neat!

I spent a nice amount of time with electron microscopes in the past (one of the reasons I like Aurios is that the use the same technology that helps keep electron microscopes from moving.)

It is incredibly fun to look at household objects under serious magnification.

I don't see any vertical modulation in the pictures. A mono record perhaps?

What this does make emphatically clear is that I really need to buy a VPI record cleaning machine.

GREAT STUFF. THANKS FOR SHARING.

Yeah right! You know as well as I, that I can't afford either

No idea - anyone?
