SPECIALISED CARTRIDGE SET UP SERVICE:
TO HELP MAXIMISE YOUR TURNTABLES PERFORMANCE WE OFFER A CARTRIDGE SET UP SERVICE USING ANALOGMAJIK KIT WITH ASSOCIATED COMPUTER & EQUIPMENT WITHIN THE AUCKLAND REGION FOR - $100-00.
 

AnalogMagik is a computer based turntable cartridge calibration software designed by Richard H. Mak and a team of engineers.  It offers a scientific and repeatable method of calibrating every cartridge setup parameter, including:

  1. Turntable Speed
  2. Azimuth
  3. Vertical Tracking Angle / Stylus Raking Angle
  4. Anti-Skating
  5. Optimising Phono Stage Loading
  6. Optimising Phono Stage Gain Setting
  7. Vertical Tracking Force
  8. Measuring Vibrations
  9. Determining Resonance Frequencies
  10. AES Wow & Flutter
  • Ater we have performed a basic alignment on your turntable's cartridge using an appropriate alignment tractor, our software and Test LPs will attempt to optimise and fine-tune all the above setup parameters to achieve a more accurate analog cartridge setup.

AnalogMagik - Not Just An Ordinary Distortion Analyser

If you own hardware based distortion analysers or computer based Oscilloscopes & Spectrum Analysers, why do you need AnalogMagik?   

Any distortion analyser can compute data, you can probably duplicate some of our test functions using the myriads of computer and hardware based analysers out there.   Many of them are free. However, all of them will lack the most important thing:  the complex algorithm, proprietary filtering and mathematical averaging required to analyse data coming from the TEST LPs designed to work with our algorithms.  Knowing how to interpret such data in a meaningful way, is a very difficult task. An ordinary distortion analyser does not have the appropriate filtering to deliver consistent and repeatable results.    Just throw in a slightly warped record and your results will be off.

AnalogMagik contains proprietary complex algorithms built into the programming and specific settings to account for the following:

  • a proper sampling rate
  • a proper sampling period
  • complex filtering for noise, clicks & pops, and statics
  • complex mathematical averaging
  • incorporate the effects of warp records
  • mathematical standard deviation
  • eliminate the detrimental effects of line electric noise
  • eliminate the effects of hum

The complex programming will greatly improve the accuracy and consistency of the results, which an ordinary distortion analyser will not do for you.   We have spent thousands of hours perfecting the special algorithm specifically designed to work with the signals on our test LPs.  The tracks on the LP are also strategically located at certain locations optimised for certain signals.

In our laboratory, we have utilised $ 35,000 laboratory grade hardware distortion analysers to perform the same tests, but the results are less stable and less repeatable than AnalogMagik, because the trick lies in the proprietary mathematical algorithms. Without them, you can spend hundreds of hours with an ordinary computer analyser simply to establish a correlation.
