This Monday, Third Creek in Knoxville had it's banks overflow. Nathan works at Lost & Found Records and has had a lot of cleaning up due to heavy flood damage. And I have had broadcast stations with equipment damage to deal with near Chattanooga from the same storm system. But we are OK in spirit and getting our work back to normal. And now for more positive news.
Phono Cartridge change at Kent T's system:
I am now using the Shure M 44-7 cartridge for my 45 RPM and vintage disc playback. Primary reason is it's still in production, has lots of output, and conical styli are still made for it which track at my desired 1-3 gram tracking force range. And styli replacement is under $30. I still use the Stanton with the EEE-S III stylus for audiophile duty. And it's still one of my favorites.
