ironlake Posted March 2, 2012 Report Share Posted March 2, 2012 I have a ar 77xb turntable with a shure v15 type V HE cartridge and find the following test to be the best I can devise for checking acoustic feedback.I have the table on a custom made shelf that screws to the wall. The table sits on that and on the table is a like original turntable mat made by a fellow in litchfield, mn. I can take the tonearm and put the stylus on the record with out the table turning, turn the table on and off to be sure the stylus is in a lp groove and the platter is not moving.Now carefully start to turn the volume up and listen to your speakers. I can get up to 100 watts perchannel with no howl etc.How many of these 15,000 dollar turntables can equal that. I doubt any of them.If you havent looked, go to acousticsounds.com and click on audio stuff and look at the prices. You will see that 15,000 is not out of the question for almost anything yet absolute sound put the 100.00 shure in the recommended category.Have any of you guys got into this area of sound yet.????????
