At my age it's likely I would only hear the 10k and 5k. This test would clearly be better using a recording of the tracks.

The STR 120 has inner, middle, and outer groove 500-50k sweeps that show the frequency losses better.

Ah good. I didn't think there was anything magic I had missed.

Yes, they don't separate the expected loss from what they call "wear loss". I found another interesting result, the sensitivity to warp/off-center seems to vary a lot with frequency and radius. I'm not sure now if the plots only looking at magnitude show cantilever resonances 20k-50k.

Informative paper on FemtoLaser capabilities and uses.

Maybe not vapourware after all.

femtosecond lasers are not vapourware. Cutting a 500m long track with one may be slightly more than has been tried before by a factor of many orders of magnitude.

They are proposing a bit more than that; they are saying the ceramic stampers will be laser cut as "mountains" not "valleys", so a lot of material being removed.

Assuming it works, though, they are eliminating a lot of steps in the stamping process (one stamper of ceramic > vinyl LP vs the lathe cut master > the master stamper > x number of mothers > x number of production stampers > vinyl LP).

Since this is only vaguely on-topic, I won't comment further.

Take a look at this modern record press:

Hopefully you suspect what I am thinking..

Hi Kevin, No idea what you're thinking but watched the horse video that followed and then this other Hand Drawn vid came up.
