This is stupid stuff, there is no way the copy is flat and won't gum up the stylus, etc. The link provided is an exercise in...

Whatever.

49. will work

hey strategem,
it's kind of silly to just assume it won't work.
it does and freq response is almost exactly the same. i've even taken ones i've made to record pressers in the area (such as Archer in detroit) that were amazed that it works so well. the task 4 is even stronger than regular vinyl, so it actually works better than a real record; just not very practical cost-wise.

i understand you may be flustered to find out that this plastic can recreate what your 10-tons of pressure do to vinyl, but this works and works well.

And the upside is? You borrow an album you can buy for two bucks and do this just because you can? I'm cool with that. but there is no practical reason for this and it can't be anything close to flat or what I'd subject a pricey cartridge to.

I'm assuming I'm living the Bush reality here and don't appreciate the need. Whatever. Enjoy.
