Corey, I undertand fulle about stlus size, and have several carts to choose amongst myself. But a recommended pressure of 4-5 grams implies a low compliance, which is the part that would concern me… Perhaps it would track well at lower pressure, I don’t know. I have everything from 0.5 to elliptical .9 mil, but I never track above 2 grams.
I was just wondering!

> Not sure about the 4-5 grams (which seems like a lot!) but, different size styli are very handy for things like avoiding the wear pattern on wide groove discs. One does not have as many choices when it comes to micro groove discs but different sizes can help there too. Different shapes can help as well. It's all about getting the best possible result.
