For best performance, the tonearm and cartridge must be matched. All cartridges will not work with all tonearms, and vice versa. To insure a proper match, one must be aware of the mechanical specifications of both the arm and phono cartridge. To see how these characteristics interact and determine compatibility, we must first understand the dynamics of the relationship. Any cartridge/tonearm combination will exhibit resonance at a specific frequency (or frequencies). This resonance is due to the interaction of the cartridge (acting as a spring), and the weight of the arm (acting as a mass). The "springiness" of the phono cartridge is described as compliance, the weight of the arm is specified in mass.

Tube Amplifiers were the first, simplest, and in my opinion still the best amplifiers. Their sound is wonderful, in part, because they are simple. The best in this category is called a single ended Class A triode amplifier. Usually one output tube is used, and the plate is connected to one wire on the primary winding of an output transformer while the other wire of the output transformer primary winding is connected to the power supply. Usually about 5 to 30 watts of output can be obtained from these tiny mites. Don't be fooled by the lower output - the sound is marvelous.

I lean toward 3-head decks because in most cases they perform better than comparable quality 2-head decks. With an individual head dedicated to playback and record they can each be optimized to best performance. Also, the ability to monitor the playback while recording can be extremely useful in use and calibration.

Reel to Reel recorders have a long history, originally invented in Germany in the 1920's, the format used today is a development of the tape format conceived by German companies Telefunken and BASF in 1934. Although most R2R recorders are analogue there exist digital recorders as well, electromechanically the only difference between the digital recorders and the analogue ones lies in the heads, ordinary tape heads are fine sandwiches of magnets but the heads on digital recorders are usually lithographed.
