Which alignment to use? This is a question that is asked often enough that I feel the need to address it here. For those who want a technical explanation, I suggest going to the vinylengine website or to the vinyl section of the audio asylum web site. I'll post links to those sites once I obtain permission to do so. For those who want just a basic explanation, here it is:
Baerwald - Is the same as Loefgren A. This alignment produces the lowest average distortion across the whole LP. It is the most common alignment in use today.
Loefgren - Meaning Loefgren B. This alignment produces less distortion through the center portion of an LP with slightly more distortion at the beginning and end of the LP.
Stevenson - This alignment produces less distortion at the inner grooves. It is probably more beneficial for classical LP's as often the most intense part of a piece of classical music tends to occur toward the end of the piece (at the inner grooves).
A note to my supporters:
It has been my privilege to have met (online and in person) hundreds of people over the last few years who have purchased protractors from me. I want you all to know how very much I appreciate your business, your support, your input, and your friendship. I thank each and every one of you who have helped me grow this from where it started to where it is now. I couldn't have done it without you.
