A recent LP based discussion reminded me of some of the LP facts/myth discussions in the hobby, so I thought I'd ask about some:
Fact, or fiction?
1) Some people claim that there is terrifically high heat generated at the contact point between a stylus and the LP's vinyl groove. This heat can actually deform the LP groove, and the LP then requires 24 hours to 'recover,' and should not be played again in that amount of time.
2) Stylast Fluid. Can a liquid product adhere to a stylus and remain in place between a stylus and the groove it is playing? If so, for how long can it adhere and withstand the rigors of its environment?
I'll stop so as other people can mention their own favorites, too!
