So, how good are your 78s? How good will they sound? Well they will sound
Virtually all the scratches your 78s may have had can be eliminated with the Click
& Pop filter that's included with our LPs to CDs systems. And it does a really
Just Check The Two Top Boxes, Minimize Big Clicks & Minimize Small Pops
and your 78s will be virtually, Scratch, Pop and click Free.
Then Check The Box Marked Minimize Hiss. If the records have what's called
crackle, you can virtually remove it with the Minimize Hiss Selection. In short,
you should be able to get the best possible recordings and from the results I've
had on about 35 of my 78s that I've converted so far. I You are going to be thrilled.
Why do I think the sound is even better then when the 78s were new? Well, when
you remove the clicks and scratches, you really do virtually your 78s to their
pristine new condition without hurting the musical sound.
But 78s always had surface noise. Now they won't. When you engage the hiss
filter the crackle and surface noise goes away without hurting the sound. That's
why I think you'll like them even better then you did in the 40s or earlier when
they were new.
What about your Cartridge and Stylus? In a perfect world, a 78 record should
be played with a spherical needle that's somewhat wider than the Elliptical Styluses
that we use today. But, I've tested the two side by side and really haven't been
able to determine any difference. I guess that conventional wisdom would say that
if you have 100s of 78s, you might want to get a different cartridge, but if it's
any less I don't think you'll notice any difference at all.
The playing at 45 RPM is really good. In fact, I've found 0 loss of quality in
any of my tests between playing at 78 and 45. It really is amazing.
You will finally be able to listen to and copy to CDs all your 78s without investing
in the space or expense of a 78 RPM turntable that's not very good for playing
45s and LPs anyway.
Enjoy your 78s and Enjoy them as you copy them to CDs.

P.S. This 78 RPM Tutorial is very short because it's so incredibly easy to
convert your 78s. Just click the 78 RPM Convert Button. But you won't be short
on great music once you start listening to your 78s again after you copy them
to your computer and CDs. It's amazing just how great the music was in the early
part of the 20th century.
