I like mono lps in stereo, here's why...

Many of my mono lps are old and no matter how much cleaning I do, they still have a fair bit of noise. When played in stereo, I get a nice clean center image, with most of the noise out to the sides as it is mostly uncorrelated between L and R. I find I can really focus on this clean transparant mono center image since it is mostly detached from the record noise which is then easily ignored. When summing using cords, all that noise is tied right back up with music. Perhaps a mono cartridge would help, don't know myself, but summing doesn't do it for me.
