High-definition vinyl: coming soon to a turntable near you

But, one company is heading up a new wave of high definition vinyl that could mean more records and turntables in the mix.

We're slightly a week away from Record Store Day 2018 (21 April) so it seems fitting that this intriguing news concerning the vinyl industry drops now.

However, using a ceramic stamper, well, you're guaranteed that each and every copy will feature the same level of quality throughout the pressings, plus it's much more environmentally cleaner and safer. "So by summer 2019 we shall see the first HD vinyls in the stores". Rebeat Innovation is betting that by using more precise tools to essentially carry out comparable tasks, it will create a better quality piece of vinyl with less loss of audio information (and in the process, eliminate some manufacturing steps). This would give records longer playing times, louder volume and most importantly - higher fidelity audio.

Weather Forecast: Dry today, then showers return this weekend
New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms. North of the front, during the day, scattered rain and thunderstorms will be a possibility.

The records would be made with a special laser machine that inscribes a three-dimensional "topographical map" onto the stamper, which then presses the grooves into the record.

The idea of HD vinyl has been explored before in a patent filed a couple of years ago in Europe, and now the startup, Rebeat Innovation, has been giving a grant of $4.8 million to help further the initiative.

However, the best part is the fact that this new format plans to be backwards-compatible, meaning that you can play them on your current record player. The process results in "high definition vinyl".

These moves indicate that the company is setting itself up for a dominant position in the smart home market. Amazon says Ring, Blink, and Amazon Cloud Cam will continue operations under their respective brands.

Rebeat has ordered its first £420,000 laser and is set to begin test pressings in September. "It will take another eight months to do all the fine adjustments".

"Our goal is to officially present our test stampers at the [Detroit's Making Vinyl conference] in October", Loibl told the site.
