Pardon my ignorance but wouldn't the differences in mass at the end of the cantilever and the several orders of magnitude less inductance of the generator differentiate the behavior of MM from MC?billshurv wrote: ↑Tue Mar 02, 2021 5:48 pm 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 'inverse resonance filter' to fix the output I think the point was somewhat missed. And he didn't do any tests with vinyl and a square wave test signal it was all theoretical.
They're similar in that both sound like crap with too low a termination one being a C and the other an R.
