I was reading about an interesting type of phono cartridge (called 'strain gauge') from the 1960's/70's on another forum. Apparently these cartridges modulated an externally applied DC voltage rather than generating a weak voltage like mm and mc carts (unless I'm not getting the right impression):


I suppose it's a bit too late in the analog game to talk about bringing this idea back, but nonetheless I find it fascinating... there's almost nothing on the Web as far as further infos (almost nobody else has heard of this, I assume... tongue.gif ). Hey, if it can't be found via Google it has to be interesting... biggrin.gif
