Do you suppose that there are many on this forum who were not aware that it is possible to play mono records on a stereo system before you informed them?
Do we not know that hooking the channels of the phono cartridge in parallel is fairly standard?
Are any of us telling you that you are not free to listen to your records that way?
You have been saying that we can't know as much as Stanton engineers have forgotten.
That could be so but you don't know that. If we want to eek a bit more performance out of our systems to play our mono Lps, lateral cut 78s, and vertical cut records by departing from what you see as Stanton's stone tablets, what is that to you? Are we compelling you to do the same?
Again I ask, If you have no interest in the subject of this string, why are you bothering us?
Now if it is not that you are saying what we are doing is just not worth the effort for any possible gains we may achieve but rather that there no gains to be achieved, fine, prove it! Draw the equivalent circuit of the parallel cartridge working into a preamp load and using Kirchhoff's laws write the equations and show us.

If a thread is started is nobody allowed to have a different point of view or suggest anything alternative to your or lds ideas?Its as though all expect from any poster is adoration and if that isn't forthcoming you take offence,why?
