The original diaphragms warp and harden over time. This changes the sound chamber size and geometry, and the material gets stiff.... the Figure6 diaphragm is made of cotton and linen bond layered paper, finest available. It is polymerized, to protect it from humidity changes.

Increased clarity, presence, and fidelity are what you will hear. Reduced surface noise, because the diaphragm isn’t so hard and immovable. It passively filters because of the material selection.

MOST IMPORTANT: make sure the diamond on yours is good. Never play dirty or chipped records, they will wear diamond down or destroy it.

At this point, I have only installed these in Standard reproducers. The Standard weight is 200 grams. The Edisonic is 270 grams. Will it help? With ELECTRIC recordings, it very well might. Worth the try?

Hey VanEppsFan,

I am moving to a smaller home and have a lot of great DD machines for you to buy at low prices. Unfortunately I'm on the west coast. Marc.

So, MicaMonster--What do I do?

I just finalized a deal and am in the process of having an Edisonic Beethoven delivered to me. I wanted to keep the original loud but not blasting sound by having you rebuild the original reproducer anyway. Should I upgrade to this new diaphragm? I am really confused about what to do; as I have no idea what the original Edisonics sounded like compared to ones equipped with your new diaphragm. I believe in supporting modern technology; such as the superior reproduction cylinders being made; but am at a loss with my Edisonic. HELP!! :shock:
