Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped

Re: May be true....

Do you know dynamic range on vinyl also falls of the closer you get to the centre ? Think angular velocity and radius.

Hence the popularity of 12" 45rpm singles during the 1980's: higher circular velocity even near the centre of the disc, and more lateral room for the groove. I've even seen a few of those being cut spiraling outward so that the bits with the highest dynamic, usually at the end of the song, got the better suited disc area. Played havoc with autostop/autolift players, though.
