I guess you can expect a factory installed arm/cartridge to be set up properly. I'd still want to check though even if only for reassurance that things haven't gone "off" in transit.


This was something I considered. I will most likely double check things, because as you implied, you never know what kind of beating the box took in transit.

This whole conversation has me intrigued about the technical limitations of vinyl. For example, is there a minimum or maximum frequency that can be "encoded" in vinyl (akin to the ~20Hz and 44.1kHz cutoffs on digital CDs)? Does this differ for 33s, 45s, 78s? Is there a way (based on the needle tip and equipment setup) for a knowledgeable person to precalculate the bands that the most noise interference will likely be in, and thus minimize or remove it? Etc.

It's particularly pertinent as I'm planning to attempt a vinyl-to-FLAC encoding soon.

There are two different things here. The spiral lead out groove on some pressings of the vinyl. including the original British one (but not US) has the ~ 15 kHz tone. When it then clicks into the central, inner, locked groove circle you get the "Lucy abbey all the way" part and (as we see from bandpass' spectral analysis) the annoying tone ceases.

The "Lucy abbey all the way" part has been released on some CDs, such as Rarities, however the annoying tone part that precedes it has never been released on any CD that I know of.
