Technical appraisal of existing systems indicated requirements for improved response, increased efficiency, greater stability, and better power handling capabilities. A redesigned cutter and amplifier embody these improvements and incorporate practical operational advantages, typical of which are self-aligning styli and front-panel amplifier adjustments. Plug-in equalizers associated with cutters ensure constant velocity with cutter interchange. The new amplifier is compatible with new and existing cutters.
