don’t you need two for stereo?
Nice pics Mark. Any idea how much use that stylus has had?
Flogged to death IMO
No idea tbh.
Amazing images Mark
how quickly do they wear? Given diamond is pretty much the hardest thing known to man, and that a record must be made of a softer material, I am surprised that records don’t wear quicker than styli?
They do. A stylus should last a couple of thousand hours. if you played a record for that long, it would be fucked.
Except an lp groove is about 1km long
No wonder CD’s caught on.
ok that makes sense
Yeah its heaven sent for Prog.
I assume that makes the stylus wear much quicker, which is one of the reasons it sounds like shit.
Prog records never wear, cos no fucker ever plays them…
Yes, the prolonged high frequencies from flute solos with added cape resonances causes havoc…
I bet they destroy those cigarette lighter tweeter thingies in a flash…
Steady, you’d be bored if you were banned over Christmas
Fuck, Santa’s put us on the naughty list.
the implication of course, since your tweeters are fine, is that you have a better taste in music!
Well retrieved sir!
A soft material moving fast on a hard material causes wear to the hard material. Metal polishing is a good example.
