Crosstalk
« on: May 06, 2014, 08:45:13 PM »
Hi All

I found a Decca test record in my old man's book store, and it explains things as you go along.

One of the tracks is crosstalk testing but when they swing from one channel to the other I can still faintly hear the music/talking on the other channel.

Is this correct or should it be completely silent on the muted channel?

Regards

Crosstalk is quite high on vinyl... usually -25db versus CD that is at -70db

You pay extra on some expensive headphone amps for "crossfeed"... vinyl does it for free! :EGrin:

Thanks. That comment made my morning.
