Mugato: Wake me up when they create a 3D printed Cardassian data rod.
Fizpez: I bet that would sound better with a $1500 pure copper braided cable with solid gold connections hooked to the authentic vaccuum tube speakers.
theorellior: Then you lose the warm sound.
Dinjiin: theorellior: Then you lose the warm sound.I've never gotten this. I found that the classic "warm sound" was more of a product of vacuum tube amplification than it was from using records. There are plenty of DIY kits and small shops that still make tube amps, so if you want the sound, you can still buy it.
lewismarktwo: Even more hilariously you can just master your digital recordings to emulate that sound.
UNC_Samurai: Wouldn't the point of this be to make the record out of something more durable than vinyl?
Riche: Then I realized that records themselves are laughably impractical
ArcadianRefugee: Riche: Then I realized that records themselves are laughably impracticalI could play a record using a needle, a plastic cup, and a [very] steady hand (yes, this is an exaggeration). Point is, nothing but mechanical parts that I have on hand or can build (not an exaggeration).Can't really say the same for CDs et al.
ArcadianRefugee: Can't really say the same for CDs et al.
Holographic Shimmering Pork: Fizpez: I bet that would sound better with a $1500 pure copper braided cable with solid gold connections hooked to the authentic vaccuum tube speakers.You have absolutely no idea how drastically you low-balled your speaker wire snark. $33,000.00/set
bbfreak: Its not new, its Fark. Where old news comes to die.
Virtue: Its a digital record.......to my knowledge it would not be possible to print an analog recording.
JohnnyC: Whoa... just looked and cubify's pricing on the ABS cartridge is $50 per cartridge (with lowered prices on bulk orders)... yeesh.
Vaneshi: JohnnyC: Whoa... just looked and cubify's pricing on the ABS cartridge is $50 per cartridge (with lowered prices on bulk orders)... yeesh.I'm not saying you're wrong but don't you find it odd that in the space of what? 4 years we've gone from "they're too expensive! Nobody would ever want one!" to biatching about how much their consumables cost?Sure it sucks but isn't it kinda cool we're at this stage already?
Quantum Apostrophe: /Why is it so difficult for you people to understand I'm mocking the delusional and delirious hype?
Quantum Apostrophe: My God, this definitely means we'll colonize the Galaxy now!/Why is it so difficult for you people to understand I'm mocking the delusional and delirious hype?
Egoy3k: StoPPeRmobile: Egoy3k: So they used a digital printer to print the vinyl record. So essentially they have an easily damaged CD?Have you ever checked out 10 year old CDs?Yeah I have a bunch in my car I listen to them often. Why?
Mr. Cat Poop: I have CDs I bought in high school 25 years ago that still play just fine. My wife has CDs less than a year old that are unplayable. It helps to not use them as coasters or floor mats in your car in between playings.
