 9th April 2003, 09:11 AM #1 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Nov 2001 Location: Trondheim Excact RIAA numbers? Hi! I was hoping someone could shead som light over the RIAA response curve. The points are as usual the 50Hz, 500Hz, 2120Hz and maybe the 50kHz. My question is: My guessings are: 20Hz = +20dB 50Hz = +17dB (20-3dB) 500Hz = +3dB 1kHz = 0dB 2120 = -3dB 20kHz = -20dB 50kHz = -25dB (??) but Im not sure. At least not about that 50kHz... I recently found this Excel RIAA table, showing numbers that obiously where calculated from one heck of a formula, and the numbers from that table compared to my points up there where not identical. So, what are the REAL numbers to use? Are this Excel Table accurate? I think so, but I would appreciate some comments, especially on that 50kHz point. http://www.bonavolta.ch/hobby/en/audio/riaa.htm Cheers;

Allen Wright (amongst others) also incorporates a 3.18us constant to compensate for the response of most cutter heads.

I think it's not very important but if you use a non-inverting amp you can get this almost for free. __________________ /Per-Anders (my first name) or P-A as my friends call me PA03 LM4780 amplifier group buy, SIGN UP HERE for the group buy 0 boards left. 118 paid.

Well, I happen to care a lot about that particular part.

Uh? How does that one go?
What's signal polarity got to do with this?

Cheers,

Somewhere I have the RIAA document, from the Beast itself, with the exact numbers. Maybe I'll look for it. Meanwhile.......this might be fun. [joke] Looks like Frank is becoming a Texan. Amazing the influence I have on people who actually pay attention. Jocko

Just hope it's a two way street so one day I can show you what tubes and vynil can do to cure you of digititis?

How on earth did you guys catch this booby trap anyway?

So the travelling plan is California, Texas, must check some New York ears too ( for onions) and than...Canada???

Cheers guys,

I have three different kinds of RIAA networks. This file did I make for my QSXM3 phono amp. The file is for my personal use, therefore not so pedagogical maybe.
