I think, on a serious note [pun intended], that we need to find a way to clean up a very old production approach, if not re-design it. Vinyl record production is far from dead & the interest in analog products is continuing to grow. And will for a long time to come. Though digital recordings are here to stay, they are a beast of their own colors & are simply not a replacement for fine analog recordings.
running to the desert is not the long term solution. we're still trying to find a path to demonstrating that alternate cleaning methods prior to plating may improve the product.
