    No wonder vinyl is so expensive. The process is inefficient and driven by Victorian era technology (apart from the cutting).

    It's actually true. The R&D with vinyl is nonexistent compared to modern digital media. There could be ways to cheapen the process but since the audience is a minimal fracture of cd pressing audience, it's not affordable to create new ways of doing it. There have been a few "revolutions" to the press process but still the biggest one remains to be moving from clay as raw material to plastic about 50 years ago.

    Shit i dont know what i'm talking about... discuss!

    On the other hand, if vinyl presing cost were t.ex. a 1/10th of the cost today, it would just fatten the label owners purses i think. No effect on the end user.
