RE: Null points for 7" discs?

I believe you are the only one splitting hairs. If you took the time to read my original answer to Damian, you would know that I provided all the tools necessary for him to choose any modulated groove envelope he wanted and calculate the optimal set of null-points for his own record collection. You, on the other hand, just keep blowing more and more smoke.

> Let's be clear here - the Standards are a guideline but are not mandatory.

You are very wrong. Standards are mandatory; otherwise, you end up with unplayable records. It would be absurd to set up your turntable for outliers and records that deviate from the standards unless you intend to readjust your tonearm for each individual record. Outliers and records that deviate from the standards are exceptions to the rule. You want your turntable optimized for the vast majority of records, not the outliers.

> The Best solution is the one that works best for the end user.

I know! That's why I'm wondering why you're arguing with me. I'm not the end user. Just like you, I presented my case and provided the end user with the tools necessary to solve his problems. I didn't attack you or your answers.

I'm sure Damian can make up his own mind how to align his tonearm. Therefore, you don't have to try to convince me of anything else.

Thanks, but no thanks!
