Phonograph Needles - Facts:

Phonograph Needles featuring superior Turntable stylus. We have everything for your turntable needs. The best option is a special pre-amp designed for 78s, but they are not cheap. As the skin travels outwards, away from the centre of the drum, the air pressure surrounding the drum rises above the barometric pressure; conversely as the drum skin travels inwards, the air pressure lowers. Like the cylinder phonographs, it reproduced sound with a needle whose mechanical vibrations were amplified by using a cone-shaped horn. Usually the optimum setting is such that the top edge of the arm is parallel with the surface of a flat record you can use a piece of card with parallel lines drawn on it to check this once the cartridge is fitted.

Edison recorded sound on a cylinder, which was then rotated against a needle. A traditional belt driven turntable provides a rich sound, unmatched by today's digital tecnology. The same advice does not apply for a steel needle. Satisfaction is always guaranteed at turntablebelts.

To rebalance the system, you can try moving the speakers, or improve cartridge alignment, or play with room changes or even component changes. The design is aimed at keeping the cartridge as parallel to the groove as possible; the theory is that this will reduce or eliminate skipping. (This is only possible on a turntable that features digital processing.
