    First time in a thrift in a year. Only thing I found. VG++ Mono. Decca caught my eye is why I bought. $0.39. I like old country once in a while.

    Nice!! That Decca logo was the first thing that popped out at me, too!

    Do you use a different cartridge or stylus for mono?

    Stereo cartridges on two tables currently in use. Have other tables I could put a mono cart. on, but haven't. I have maybe 100 mono. LP's but really don't listen to them often enough to justify.

    Thanks! I am just recently back into LPs and trying to understand if a mono-specific cartridge is actually a necessity or not. I have a hard time seeing why it would be, especially like you say knowing how infrequent you would actually play a mono record.

    OK. Tax season is upon us. :#
    I don't seem to have a 1095...

    My New Years resolution was to get the music media
    thing under control. :p The new Phono cable - pre
    seems to be mellowing out. Life is good!
