Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

I'm still looking for some clarity about the difference in behavior between termination at the generator, typically by an active input and load R, and reflected termination that is connected at the secondary of a MC transformer. One's incident the other reflected. The reflected load has to "transver...

Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

JP.: The test record is the only difference?

I did notice the left and right y-axis scale differences.

Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

That is certainly the theory. But as it makes no sense from an MC perspective and they use the same cantilevers as MM there must be something else going on. Note that in the paper I quoted the mechanical resonance was frigged to give the answer they wanted but since it then drove the design of an '...

Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

JP. Is that last image a 150 pF or 0 pF load?
The header reads 150 but the .wav file has 0 pF in the path.
I'm guessing 0.

The distortion peak is bodacious.
Similar to what I heard with the '681 lightly loaded.

Re: The Corona Virus Hoax of 2020

George - You're right about this being criminal. I've used the word once in this thread though it has been used in a few quotes in statements made by others. My letters to the Dallas County Commissioners - accusing them and our County Health Director of being criminals - used the word far more often...

Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

Bill: It would appear that mechanical resonance is a "feature" used to extend/peak the response. Is that fair to say? Thanks for posting that. JR: Comment about the difference in termination with R at the generator versus R on the secondary of the transformer. It would seem that for an equal value o...

Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

My Stanton 681, with only a cable Cload (maybe 120 pF) makes a cymbal crash sound like trash can lids. I'm using the DL-103/MC preamp now and would have to look at the uninstalled MM preamp's jumpers but I recall adding 150 or 200 pF to tame it. C-Loading the '681 sounds like what I would expect it ...
