What Rubbish!

-Tonearm Geometry and Frequency-Modulation Distortion- and Discussion

Investigated are the mechanisms by which a tonearm and cartridge system can
generate frequency-modulation distortion during playback of phonograph
records. Tonearm geometry is shown to influence the relative amount of
distortion, and, in particular, tangential tracking designs are shown to be
inherently less susceptible to horizontal mode distortion than conventional
offset designs.
