PANASONIC SE 405: another cd4 disc demodulator for Strain Gauge cartridges

Neither moving magnet, nor moving coil, nor moving iron...what is it?
The UNUSUAL system is called strain gauge, based on old vintage CD4 Panasonic/Matsushita cartridges.
Here you are some pics of the Panasonic demodulator...

Mono in Mono: PIERRE CLEMENT L7B Mono Cartridge

As most audiophiles know TRUE MONO cartridges are built only to pick up signals of the record in the horizontal plane.


Mono pressings sound more lively, have depth perception and less noise.



Is also faschinating to experience the excellence of mono recordings in the manner that they were meant to be heard and enjoyed at that time.


Among the many mono cartridges which I have had, this Pierre Clement is one of my favourites.
