HFN Analogue Test LP - The Producer's Cut
New Audiophile Pressing
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
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.
