Stockfisch have found a new way to bring vinyl fans even closer to the original recording. Their DMM lathe cuts the audio into a copper plated steel disc. They normally use this process to create a 14" DMM-Master that is sent to pressing plants for the production of vinyl records.
Their new DMM-Dubplate however, is about the same size as a 12" vinyl record. This makes it possible to play it on any record player and helps you bypass the loss in sound quality that is caused by the additional steps in the production of records, such as galvanic processes and the pressing of the vinyl.
The DMM-Dubplate avoids issues like pre-echos and crackling noises. The high purity phosphate-copper has very little groove noise and clicking noises are seldom. Only one side of a DMM disc is recordable since the backside is not copper plated. The tracking force of the tonearm can be left as is.
Important Information: The DMM-Dubplate should not be washed with a record-cleaning machine, since it might cause a chemical reaction on the copper surface. In contrast to a vinyl record, there's no mechanical abrasion and no electrostatic charge in the copper groove. After the DMM-Dubplate has been played, it should be placed back in the plastic sleeve together with the white protection sheet, in order to prevent oxidation.
Please also note: With the DMM-Dubplate, the wear-rate of the diamond-stylus is comparable to when playing a regular vinyl record.
