What I mean is, do you have the ability to save some cash for some point of time in the future? Hey Paul. Hooton, may not be too keen to another TT on the stereo cabinet. I am very curious. No, this is not a now or never, but I would love to hear these recordings the way GOD meant for them to be heard. You mentioned saving, but I dont know what to save for…. If you want to do a job right, you need the right tools.
So, a mono cartridge, ideally, should be used to track mono records. There are plenty of mono carts around, some are more expensive than others. Now, you have issues with swooping over carts for fear of damage doing just that. I guess the Rega is your main deck but stereo is your main format? If so, keep the stereo cart in the Rega.
Buy a spare headhsell for your Technics or use the current one and make your Technics a specialist mono turntable.
Swopping a turntable over now and again should be less stressful than changing a cartridge. As for carts? Depends on available cash. If you go the Planar 1 route? Then get a better cartridge. Talk to me it you need guidance to hero in on your target solution. Paul, thank you for the suggestions. I wish there was a replaceable stylus option to make it easier, but I am just not comfortable taking the cart in and out. In a word — yes, Mark. The right tool for the job, as I say. As swopping carts is a bit dubious for you, I would advise two turntables and then either work out a way to place the two turntables next to each other so you end up simply swopping the cables over to your phono amp from one deck to the other or, if you have to change the turntables over to hear mono, to minimise that swopping over, might I suggest extended mono listening session of a week or so?
That is, save it all up, as it where. IN this article is a table showing specs and prices of the current MONO carts atleast from a few years ago. The VM you listed above is in the table, but with a footnote. If I read the footnote correctly, it essentially says that this cart is designed to mimic the MONO button or Y-patchcord. That would not be the optimal solution based on other things you said.
The more you spend, the better the components and the purer the sound. Spend more on a mono cart and you will find a better quality of sound from a more considered design. For example, and as an aside, none of the cartridges I mentioned to you are ground up mono designs.
They are all adapted from stereo designs. Because building a mono cart from scratch is incredibly expensive. You can test this yourself. If you see a mono cart in an arm, place it on the vinyl and watch the cantilever. So, yes, cheap mono carts can be a fudge but I advise you to spend as much as possible and get the best one you can.
The more you spend, the better the design. One more tip? Incredible value — it should be at least twice the price.
Paul, thank you again for all your time and your expertise. Actually, I think in one of your occurrences, you actually spell it swoop. Anyway, I can only assume, that there are people that might actually change out the cartridge from stereo to mono to listen to their albums, even as you said, for extended period of time to take it vantage of the opportunity. I just see Too many ways to damage either cartridge, having to unhook those for tiny wires, mount the cartridge, and then align everything over and over again.
The two turntable option, unless you have a head shell that will except another stylist too many ways to damage either cartridge, having to unhook those for tiny wires, mount the cartridge, and then align everything over and over again. The two turntable option, unless you have a head shell that will except another cartridge, as the only way to do this. I will keep in touch and let you know when I purchase a cartridge, and get everything set up and try it out.
Its confidence I suppose but, like driving a car, the more you do it the less it worries you. That said, you have to feel comfortable. Another option, is it possible to have a second hi-fi in another room topped by the Technics? To have, in effect, a mono hifi system in a different part of your house?
Thanks for an excellent summation of the various Beatles box sets. There was also a Japanese set on red vinyl, beautifully pressed but clean and sterile sounding. That had the albums in stereo at Press promos, at the time, were non-existent I recall.
It was a triumph to get a press release in a card folder from them. Interesting to hear about the sound quality difference, though.
Thanks for that. Paul, this is not necessarily an audio question, but would you by chance know how one might obtain the books that are sold with the CD versions of the 50th anniversary editions of Sgt Peppers, The White Album and Abbey Road??
I have the vinyl of the first two and will get Abbey Rd for Christmas. I would love to have the hardback book that come with the Deluxe CD versions that are sold, but they dont seem to offer the book separately. After I put in my information it sticks on submitting. I tried to download it from the egg blend page as well and it did not work. The clip cards worked just fine. Hi Kasey, Thanks for reaching out.
