It's not as flat as the ELP, but a strain gauge cartridge can extract
the kind of low frequency garbage you are referring to. I was running a

was listening with stereo subs that used three 12" woofers per side. I
got a real fright on some LPs between cuts. The woofers would nearly
flap themselves to death.
