    Chad produces laquers for quality records. As long as he is still pressing records, I will be happy. Many of these other outfits doing rock/pop reissues are using digital to cut their laquers. I have no use for them.

      Now now johnny not all dodgital is bad. For me if it's from tape to dsd and that would be used for laquer it might be even better lol. But I get your point though. Honestly how much can can assured of its purity meaning chain of custody
      and then how much is your faverite in quality. How surprised would you analog people be if the good stuff was from dsd from tape
      i am at a point of both disgust and exhaustion trying to find what I think is great or pure. I feel we are looking for a virgin ina White House at times. Lol

              Interesting observation, Al. I have often been troubled by this similar conundrum, in that the closer I get to the "absolute sound", the more the flaws make themselves audible.

            and they said it was over when:

            they stopped making vacuum tubes

            stereo was introduced

            the radio replaced records

            and

            the 78 was phased out in favor of the 10" LP.

            Just remember, in the immortal words of John Belushi,

            We did not give up after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.

                Hell I wrote my first article on record inner sleeves (Paper or Plastic? Vinyl's Final Resting Spot) back in the early '90s because MOFI was going to discontinue making record sleeves. Bought a ton load of MOFI inner sleeves back then just to hedge my bets (as well as picking up around 800 VRP inner sleeves from an eBay seller around five years ago) and now have about a 2000 inner sleeves ferreted away.

                  Myles- think your comment above was intended to go in the thread on vinyl hazing/plasticizer leaching, not here? Maybe not, it's the theme of obsolescence that doesn't occur, but it also works in that thread....

                    No was meant to be another example of something that was going the way of the dodo bird and didn't.

                      So far we've not had any troubles getting lacquers or styli, although we've not been ordering in large quantities.

                      I also think something is exaggerated in that article. When a lacquer comes in to a pressing plant, they plate it right away. Once that is done it might be a while (weeks or months) before you can get a test pressing, but once the plating has been done the storage can be for years with no worries.

                        Ralph's absolutely right about that! At worst, it's 24 hours because of shipping (for instance say in the old days when many had their lacquers plated and pressed by Teldec). For the best facilities--RTI, QRP, MOFI, TML and I'm sure a few others I've forgotten (don't know about Pallas)--they have both the mastering and plating on site.
