Controversy over RIAA curve

Looks like my review of the FM Acoustics 122 Mk II Phono Linearizer (see previous post) has sparked off much debate and controversy among vinyl addicts.


After some googling around, I discovered that there have already been debates over proper equalisation, RIAA and all the other curves used in the record-cutting industry in other sites.

There was much debate on the subject in The Absolute Sound a couple of years ago. To read the thread, click http://www.avguide.com/forums/adjustable-riaa-curves-necessary

Also, I found a very interesting website on a product called the REK-O-KUT RE-EQUALIZER. The author said you may sometimes find Columbia records with LP (Columbia's own curve) equalisation on one side and RIAA equalisation on the other side!
