Binaural

This is another one I haven't seen before.


  

This nicely pigmented album only appears to have two tracks but in reality it only has one since it is a binaural recording which requires two cartridges to play it.  This means you need a tonearm with two headshells,








The arm appears to work like a linear tracker and may have been the inspiration for the Garrard zero 100.  Here is a crude video showing it in action and some liner notes.

  1. Kinda looks like a BJ arm. I have a Cook test record. I've seen ads for add-on headshell/arm stub combos that you could clamp on to your existing arm to play these - wonder how well that worked.
