Compatibility of Stereo Recordings and Monaural Playback

Document Thumbnail

The decreasing availability of monaural recordings has raised the important question of the compatibility of the stereo recording when played back with one of the monaural pickup cartridges in current use. Some quantitative data are presented showing the effect on stereo recordings of several monaural cartridges requiring a range of vertical tracking force. The results show a rather wide range of effects from minimal wear with high-compliance pickups to very rapid deterioration when stereophonic recordings are reproduced with a low-compliance cartridge requiring heavy tracking force.
