Vinyl records have more information than you know!
Sounds are put on Vinyl records from the top to the bottom of a record Groove. The old Record stylus or Needle sees the sound at the bottom. Our Lasers are better because they can see the sounds on the top as described below. Usually the top is NOT damaged! The Lasers play music with much better quality than a record Stylus or Needle, because there is No Contact.
A Laser never touches your Vinyl record, and will never hurt it. Also, the music from Vinyl records does not get changed by a computer into digital sound like you hear on a CD. A CD will not give you the True sound. The sound from the Laser is the True sound made by the singers and musicians.
The Laser Turntable has 5 Laser Beams.
The First 2 beams aim at both shoulders at the left groove and right for tracking purposes.
The Next 2 beams read the Audio Signal, closer to the shoulder.
The Last beam is for the height control between laser head and the surface of record to manage thick or warped records.
Note : Lasers are so accurate that they play every particle of dirt and dust on the records, rather than pushing them aside as a conventional stylus would. The LT creates a lot of Noise and or Groove Skipping if the Record is too dusty. However, the cleaner your records get, the better the LT sounds, and the Noise lessens.
NO STYLUS ! No more contact with vinyl ! No more vinyl wear !
No digitization !
Professional sound engineers in Japan listened and determined that the Sound Quality of our Laser Turntable approaches the original sound on a master tape.
With the purest, sweetest Analog Playback
The laser “sees” and plays the music that a stylus misses !
