A newly funded Austrian startup is prepared to change the way we listen to vinyl records. Their process is called HD vinyl and is said to offer better sound quality, higher frequency response, 30% more playing time, and 30% more amplitude than the vinyl records you're currently spinning. To achieve this, audio is converted digitally to a 3D topographic map. Lasers are then used to inscribe the map to a stamper that stamps the grooves into the vinyl. In addition to the improvements to your listening experience, HD vinyl would be safer for the producers as well by eliminating the toxic chemicals used in the current mastering process.
