DISC EQUIPMENT-PLAYBACK CHARACTERISTICS

If a magnetic pick-up head is used to reproduce the sound recorded on discs, the output voltage from the head will be proportional to the velocity of vibration of the needle. Consequently, the output from a magnetic head used with recordings made to characteristics of the type shown in Fig. 9.5 will increase with frequency in the bass and treble regions. (This will not be so with crystal pick-up heads as the output of these is proportional to the amplitude of modulation). Thus, correction or equalisation will be required during playback amplification to restore the true level of the signal voltage, and this equalisation should be the converse of the attenuation and boost applied while recording.

The recording ...
