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.

I was responding to this, the OP's opening question. He used the word "encoding" and made it clear he was talking about the mediums of CD and vinyl, not their playback.

Also, I made it a point to emphasize I was speaking theoretically, by italicizing the words "in theory" in my sentence:

Unlike CD, vinyl has no inherent high frequency limit, in theory.

The CD format has a hard limit in that only frequencies below 22.05 kHz can be encoded. This is not the case with vinyl. There is no hard limit, upper frequency limit like that with vinyl, in theory.
. I stand by this.
