Im curious what you guys prefer??

I have always preferred Mono because everything is combined together and to me sounds the best..

I didnt see any threads discussing it so i thought i'd start one and see where it goes smile.gif

Just one more comment...I recently heard a mono recording on the thing in the picture, the large cabinet with the horn on top. That's a phonograph without any electronics, all acoustic. The recording was made with an all acoustic recorder, no electronics either. It was, simply, astoundingly good! Don't think I'd want to hear all my music that way, but it was loud, clear, clean, and quite dimensional.

There are much better gramophones (phonographs)...

Acoustic phonographs were made through the early 1950s. Some were child's toys, but some were larger and had a more serious intent. My recollection is that they sounded a lot better than that partially because they could be used to play 78s that were made by more modern means.
