Don’t throw away your old vinyl yet…

…says the BBC’s Chris Long. All those old Mozart LPs could still have a whole new life ahead of them if you have a phono pre-amp that can turn the weak analouge signal into something that can be turned into a digital file. Then you need to filter all the crackle and pop out of the original, which comes at a price with regard to the quality of the music. Remember the laws of copyright, which for recorded works lasts for 50 years after the year in which the recording was made. With regard to very old recordings each year more and more analogue material enters the public domain. Some of the original classical recordings are unique works by some of the greatest orchestras and musicians in history. Also the required technology is no longer expensive. So I’m just going to dust off Toscanini.
