Anyone for Mono ?
Returning here at 70 , due to being offered a new TT / Grace f9e from Arthur at Funk .
Since 2006 , I have just had an ex-dem Linn Classic Movie which introduced me to CD and DVD , my TT being defunct.
The Linn is OK as a stand alone CD player with amplifiers but the DVD/Tuner/inputs are defunct .
I now have a Quad Vena with inexpensive MM phono stage and RCL speakers from 1981 .
In anticipation , I have been revisiting my LPs , mostly 1960s female vocal and Opera to find that the majority are mono .
Two reasons for this - around 1965 I had mono record player and there was choice of mono or stereo .
Subsequently , used Mono opera sets / LPs were much cheaper - the music was the main attraction !
With unbalanced hearing loss Mono is actually more appropriate with headphones , so it's great for me .
Some of my stereo CDs can sound unbalanced now .
Does anyone have any mono recordings these days ?
