Squeaky: Why Vinyl?

Squeaky: < prev | next >

You may be wondering why a guy that's into robotics would want anything to do with records. They're so last millenium! I've always enjoyed the experience of playing records and I recently discovered that LPs can rival CD sound quality. Provided the records are well cleaned and played on a good turntable.

As we all know, the word robot comes from the Czech robota, figuratively meaning drudgery, or hard work. Nothing could better describe the process of cleaning LPs. It really sucks. And that's where Squeaky comes in.

In case you still don't believe LPs can sound good, here's an audio clip comparing the CD and LP versions of the same recording of Mozart's Oboe Concerto. Have a listen.
