Classic Records pioneer new vinyl formula

In recent months, we've seen a few titles coming through on Classic Records [Norah Jones 'Come Away With Me', Jethro Tull's 'Aqualung' & John Coltrane's 'Blue Train' to name but three], presented in a true audiophile format – 4 LPs mastered at 45RPM on what the label describe as Clarity CLEAR SVP-II 200gram Virgin Vinyl, and that's where the clever bit comes in: Clarity Vinyl represents the ultimate in vinyl formulations because it is comprised of over 90% of the highest quality co-polymer available – a key component in vinyl pellets used for manufacturing vinyl records. Further, Clarity Vinyl has no carbon black additive, common in vinyl formulas for LPs. Carbon Black contains trace metals that become magnetized and cause electrical distortions in cartridges during playback that smear the sound. By taking out the Carbon Black, Classic Records is able to dramatically reduce the distortion and thus bring more clarity to the playback process, providing a more realistic musical experience to the listener and LP enthusiast.
