Seriously, what I meant was that in TTs, the freedom of the audiophile in choosing what to mate as a record player ( cart + arm + turntable = record player, NOT meant as a bellittle-ing of turntable, as generally in English language  - Turntable > Record Player; record player is more than just a turntable, the turntable in itself can not reproduce sound ) is WAY too great. And no one can deny that looks sell - compatibility be damned. Add to that "forced marriages" due to distributors/retailers - although glaring examples like a low compliance light weight moving coil cartridge in a Black Widow tonearm are (hopefully) thing of the past, how many distributors have you seen exhibiting an arm with the cartridge by their competition - regardless of being known that combo of "our" arm and "their" cartridge producing best results ? They usually let it limp best it can with what they are distributing - it is a fact of real life.

In car terms - if the roads ( theorethically ) supported safe 200 mph traffic, with "normal" high end TTs getting on average a hair below or above 100 mph at a punishing price is not exactly doing great. And no, you are not allowed to use an engine from Mercedes on the chassis of Audi in the "skin" of a BMW - that contraption, although composed with fine igridients, would have to be atested to be allowed to run in normal traffic; cost to do the necessary conversions etc in order for the car as a whole to work properly would be immense, even more so to get it atested. The quality of the resulting ride would most likely be totally disproportionate to the end cost.

In TTs, one is  allowed to do similar. Ultimate price in worse examples usually paid by the RECORDS themselves - definitely not a good proposition.



The phonograph (as an object type "machine") is a precarious like situation comparable to attempting to balance an electric ice cream maker a top a washing machine in heavy spin cycle with a comforter inside. Added ontop is a lie detecter machine and a complete ruin of the party with a single error on the graph paper.

Washing machine is the record. They are never perfectly balanced when they spin up and down and from side to side.


Electric ice cream maker is the motor. They go grrrrrrrrrrrr round and round producing vibrations.



The lie detector is the needle that goes side to side. Add to it the fact the groove holds the lie, which is that it represents a real musical performance.


I don't know if you have ever been to a party when the record skipped revealing the difference between a record and a live performance?

Just an alagory on the precariousness of it all.

Does 1am spinning some vinyl before getting to sleep count as early morning listening? :P

Not pictured, but my FOTM is the mono pressing of "Give the people what they want". I have the stereo version too but it's been relegated to the bottom shelf.
