What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Thorens TP-16 Mk II

 Professional TP 16 MkII tone arm
For optimum in tracking ability it is not sufficient that a tonearm has a low bearing friction. It is much more important that it has a low effective mass, because high mass prevents the stylus from following the imperfections (warp or ripple) of the record as it should do.
To overcome high effective mass one can increase the stylus force, but this results in excessive record wear.
Precision bell bearings are used in this professiional arm, mking it insensitive to shock and rough handling , ideally used for broadcasting and discotheques. In addition, the TP 16 MkII is a straight arm and not S-shaped. The necessary offset angle is independent of the arm shape. A special surface treatment of the tone armtube absorbs all undesirable resonances of the tone arm.
It will optimise ideally with almost every cartridge.
