Measurements of total harmonic distortion reveal the influence of pinch-effect upon monophonic reproduction by stereo systems. Methods of reducing pinch distortion and its influence on stereo phonograph cartridge design will be discussed. Measurements of intermodulation distortion contribute to the establishment of important cartridge design requirements for minimum reproduction distortion as well as recording limitations to achieve the same goal.
