messing is the dutch word for brass..

Not sure why they are called "slotted brass cylinder head screws" in Dutch, but I guess that is a loose translation of cheese head screw. I don't believe it is a literal translation, can't imagine brass would be a good material for a real cylinder head screw.

Perhaps one of the Dutch speaking members of the forum can set us straight.

Germane to this discussion but only available in German, Reto Andreoli's (Blueelectric Magic Diamond maker) seminal article on the tracking superiority of spherical styli.

I have a spherical SPU built by him and it is fantastic.

This is the great elephant in the livingroom everytime they bring up laser machined line contact stylii.

The SPU Royal has a line contact stylus, and as an owner of two other SPU (A GM E II, and Meister Silver GM) I am curious about the issues with line contact styli. I have been told by several that setting up a cartridge with a line contact stylus is much less forgiving than an elliptical or spherical stylus. I'm still a bit skeptical about the spherical based on my less than stellar experience with a ZU Denon DL-103 on my Schick arm, not bad but the sibilance problem on female vocals and occasional mis-tracking on hot material turned me off. I guess I could get a GM II or something similar with the spherical stylus and try to figure this out..
