A new way of adjusting anti skate!
Regards Lew(m): Thanks for the gracious "hello". You wrote: "a lot of so-called authorities have run too far with that ball, saying that headshell offset is THE cause of skating". I too have heard that. One might ask those audio gurus what would...

Turntable? Arm or cartridge?
Regards gentlemen:GIGO. It's pretty much accepted that each component in a system makes its own more or less significant contribution but transducers are where the rubber meets the road. IMHO, source precedes support.Peace,  
Matching favourite Stylus to another Cartridge
Regards, samplivist:The answer to your question is yes and no.   First, the stylus assembly should be dimensionally correct for your replacement cartridge.  Next, styli and cartridges are "tuned" for best frequency response (paraphrased from Shure... 
The Arm/Cartridge Matching Myth
Regards & pardon me, down memory lane. Uberwaltz is to blame:BW TA & Denon 103--- First foray into "high end" audio was an Infinity BW, al. arm wand. Later models had a CF arm, damping trough optional.For setup the user’s manual for the BW... 
The Arm/Cartridge Matching Myth
Regards, Halcro:No need to respond ("Dover and the Professor will have to wait...."), it seems you already did, subsequent to Kirkus’ entry, 10-11-2014:Halcro wrote:"Many thanks for your thoughtful Post (as usual).....and it has made me realise ho... 
The Arm/Cartridge Matching Myth
Regards, gentlemen:Halcro (Henry) is remarkably experienced in audio. I've trusted his impressions and continue to do so. Allow me to elaborate.In a paper presented to the AES by Shure technician C. A. Anderson: "resonance exists because the arm a... 
The Arm/Cartridge Matching Myth
Regards, all:Tone arm resonance can not be eliminated. It is then best positioned  where it will least likely be excited by vibrations within the mechanical system. Cantilevers and tonearms resonate at specific frequencies, damping or dumping thes...

So many great golden era DD tables out there, what do you recommend for $1000?
Regards, Uberwaltz:I picked up a TT71 years ago "for a song" and thought the OEM mat damped HF's. Borrowed the mat from my PL 70L 11 and confirmed.Currently running a Boston Audio Mat 2 which seems to neither add or take away from the signal. If y... 
Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?

Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
Regards, Raul:There was something bothering me about my post RE: The Akai's equivalence to the AT15Sa. I needed to rummage through a box of carts laid aside for too long. Pulled out the Akai 180 stylus. It had an AT14s firmly in its grasp. Wheels ... 
Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
Regards, RaulHad the 4000-111 up last week, seems to be some debate wether the long tapered cantilever is the first released or is it the shorter one?  This week, the 1000X/RD, also a rather long tapered cantilever. Both are rewarding.Eventually t... 
Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
Regards, Raul:About generic styli: I had also obtained an AT13ea, a 14s and a 15sa. All came with after market styli. I still recall TTN's description for the ATN20SS: "For those who are committed to the exquisite sound of the AT20SS---". AT provi...
