    The Definitive Stylus Cleaner thread.

    It's often old dust either not completely removed, or re-attached from the ME. You need to move the ME around, turn it over, etc as it does such a good job, it's surface gets impregnated with fluff and fibres. Look at a used bit with a microscope and you'll see. You'll also see ME is not made of long fibres, it a micro-cellular foam. Anything long an stringy you see on a stylus did not come from the ME.

    I find it an odd looking cart, but it's how it sounds that matters.

    Just a new (at the time) multi-channel recording process. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phase_4_Stereo

    I don't think Phase 4 stereo was invented until '61. However the LXT monos are indeed much older. They are excellent quality usually. I love listening to them. Just a couple of days ago I listened to a box set of Turandot on Decca LXT mono records.

    It's proportional to that distance squared, hence it's better to half twice the mass at half the distance.

    In fact, I think you only need one milk top.

    Ground wire connection

    One of those mini jumper leads with an alligator clip on each end. Always have some around handy.

    How quiet is your background?

    Yes, if I am watching a movie like this at semi-realistic levels, I wouldn't dare do it anywhere but behind closed doors. However, I am definitely happier to put up with background noise to not be shut-in when listening to music in general.

    Sounds nearly ideal.

    Up north they walk on their back legs so they can fight you... green bastards!

    How quiet is your background?

    and with a different phone it's likely to be different again. Can't see how they can guarantee calibration, unless you set it against a known meter.

    How quiet is your background?

    I would like to set up a music room eventually, where it would soundproofed against my guitar playing from the inside, and from outside noise when listening to recorded music.

    How quiet is your background?

    You know, this is one of the reasons my best , and most used system is not in my quietest room. Very good point.

    How quiet is your background?

    Mostly, yes, but also during quiet passages in classical music - which is where I noticed it this morning.
