Measurements of total harmonic distortion reveal the influence of pinch-effect upon monophonic reproduction by stereo systems. Methods of reducing pinch distortion and the influence of this factor on stereo phonograph cartridge design are discussed. Measurements of intermodulation distortion contribute to the establishment of important design requirements for minimum reproduction distortion and impose recording limitations.
