All those problems with the stylys bouncing, not fitting, and generally wearing down vinyl records can be done away with by replacing it with lasers. This was done twice. Once by a company called Finial. But after the early 1980's recession and the subsequent introduction and popularity of CDs, the company ended up going under. More recently a company called ELP Japan also started making laser record players, but due to a lack of scalability, the laser record player remains a very expensive luxury good.
