Citation for virgin vs. recycled vinyl claims?[edit]

The article states "Since most vinyl records contain up to 30% recycled vinyl, impurities can accumulate in the record and cause even a brand-new record to have audio artifacts such as clicks and pops". But I don't see a citation. It certainly sounds plausible, and I've had many people tell me that 'virgin vinyl' is better, but I have yet to find a substantiated claim as to why. It seems all opinion based at this time. Is there a reason recycled would have more impurities than virgin (as far as I know, recycled plastics are cleaned of impurities just as virgin plastics are)?

Equalisation[edit]

The section on RIAA is so laughably bad I'm surprised it's been allowed to stand. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.125.228.111 (talk) 13:42, 11 October 2014 (UTC) The idea that RIAA was not adopted in Europe until the 1970s is complete nonsense and no evidence is presented for the statement — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.229.148.216 (talk) 08:35, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Less well known speed and size standards[edit]

In addition to the 16rpm speed (which really should be called 17rpm i.e. sixteen and two thirds rounded up) there was a very small number of spoken word recordings issues on "8 rpm" (8.3333?) discs [1]. There was even (at least one) attempt at a "3rpm" (4.167 ?) recordings [2]. 86.190.104.103 (talk) 12:42, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

The Wikipedia article Unusual types of gramophone records extensively covers the more unusual speeds and form factors. 86.129.213.73 (talk) 12:16, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Cassettes[edit]

This article says that Groove recordings 'held a predominant position for nearly a century—withstanding competition from reel-to-reel tape, the 8-track cartridge, and the compact cassette" yet Compact Cassette says "Between 1985 and 1992, the cassette tape was the most popular format in the UK". The cassette was invented in 1962 (after 1957) so it seems irrelevant to imply that it was any competition in the first century of vinyl records.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Sam Tomato (talkcontribs) 18:27, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
