LP - The Producer's Cut
New Audiophile Pressing
180gramm Virgin Vinyl
Universal alignment protractor
New and extended tracks
Complete Arm/Cartridge alignment system
Release on 16th September 2002, the 'Producer's Cut'
is the successor to the original HFN Test LP, first pressed
in 1996. Len Gregory, The Cartridge Man,
who produced the original version, had over the years concluded
that there were a number of improvements that could be made
to his earlier work which in the four years since it's release
had sold an amazing 10,000 copies around the world.
He went back to Graham Durham at The Exchange
for a new recording session, to re-cut the original tracks,
to add a frequency sweep track and to extend the Pink Noise
tracks. Then it was off to Pallas in Germany to arrange for
production, their best quality Audiophile pressing on 180gm
The resulting mechanical quality is excellent, flat, stable
and quiet, everything that an audiophile pressing should be!
In total, there are now seventeen tracks. Side one covers
channel identification and phasing, pink noise, and bias settings
(Four tracks at increasing amplitudes). Side two contains
tracking ability bands at the outside, middle and inside of
the disc, cartridge/arm resonance and alignment tests, full
frequency (20Hz-20Khz) test and a residual noise test. All
bands are separated by locked grooves.
The package is completed with the inclusion of a unique,
multi-discipline, alignment protractor, a truly universal
device that can be used to set up all sizes and types of arm
to fine degrees of accuracy, a reprint of the seminal article
by John Crabb on the theory and practice of arm/cartridge
alignment, and copious sleeve notes to take the user through
the set up procedure step by step.
The price of 25.00(GBP) includes delivery within the UK.
