Marc. I think I may have not written that quite right. What I gave up on was Edison from the early 60s though about 2004 or so. In the meantime I had a Credenza, and the Brunswick and various other models . I found at the time that the Victors or Brunswick could navigate the records without that sort of blasting distortion that I heard in the vintage Edison diaphragms. The auction and the small London machine was the restart to trying to hear them as they would have been. Of course due to the small horn size the London was alright for a bit but quickly I found the S 19 with the 150 horn and from there I moved to the Chippendale 250 which to my ear is the best, even over the Edisonic machines. I forgot that I still also have that restored Jacobean machine which uses the 250 horn but something about it seems to just not quite come up to the same sound I hear on the other Edisons. I haven't figured that one out yet.

Larry, you sound like you have a very sensitive ear. Remember to use ear muffs when you operate loud motorized equipment! Well, we Edison buffs are glad that you experimented with your new diaphragms and discovered the great True Tone for the Edison DD reproducer! Thanks, Marc.

Marc,

Thanks for the support. I wish things were going exactly as I like when it comes to the True Tone Diaphragm. The materials are very variable. The original True Tone wasn't quite so loud or forward sounding as the latter version. However finding that slightly more sensitive material has become near impossible. I had even called one of the people who were selling the type I liked best. The woman told me that in fact the one I liked was probably going to be changed to match the previous type I had used. So now I am not running into the material. So what to do? In reality the first design or material was where Steven Medved deemed it the "True Tone". I liked it because in listening in the home personally I prefer not to have a it blasting my ears as you suggested the ear muff for. However the second version of material produces more of sparkle to the sound and I miss it when I don't hear it. Most likely the original version material still produces the same fullness of tones and clarity of instruments, but won't play quite so loud.
