so at the modern one to two gram range it probably takes much more than 10,000 hours to show significant wear.


How are you able to play 78s with such low tracking force? I have 30 year old equipment which requires at least 3-4 grams tracking force. Is it your equipment that allows you to play at a much lower force? If so, which components of the TT make the difference?

Thank you.
