Hello Mr. Roth - all I meant is that you can have the cartridge phased
normally i.e. when you play a modern stereo record, it will be correct. You
don't need to physically re-wire your cartridge unless you intend to just
listen to the music. When I'm recording, I have the volume low because I am
more concerned with listening to the final product. When I said out of phase
I meant out of phase for vertical records. I have one turtable I use for
almost all recording and like to keep is simple - I still have about 100
diamond discs - would you like a list? -Mickey

>> Hello everyone,
>> I am transferring Edison Diamond disks.
>> I'm using a Shure M44-7 with a 3.5 FCR stylus from Expert Stylus.
>> I think I've rewired the leads properly for a hill-n-dale groove.
>> The turntable is a Technics Quartz SL 1200 Mk 2.
>> I'm using a KAB Great Sound Escort pre-amp.
>> Still, the sound leaves much to be desired.
>> I'm having an extra hard time transferring the Liszt 2nd Hungarian
>> Rhapsody p/b Rachmaninoff.
>> Any suggestions?
>> Thank you.
>> Ben Roth
>> P.S. I strongly dislike that cadenza of Rachmaninoff! I don't think
>> would have like it either.
