When you play it, it says, "QA is a raving nutter!" over and over again.

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.

Even more hilariously you can just master your digital recordings to emulate that sound.

I bet that would sound better with a $1500 pure copper braided cable with solid gold connections hooked to the authentic vaccuum tube speakers.

I was about to post how 3D printing would never be a practical way to create records....

...Then I realized that records themselves are laughably impractical and have been for over 20 years now.

I like it. Download and print your records, and print new ones when they wear out.

I don't see myself ever owning a record player again, but I still think this is neat Frankenlog technology.

Wouldn't the point of this be to make the record out of something more durable than vinyl?
