I have no experience playing mono records and therefore no experience playing mono records with a stereo cartridge. I'm thinking about buying a mono Ritchie Valens 1st press (1958). I've always wanted that record. I'm a bit of a first press hound....otherwise I'd buy a different version and this wouldn't matter. I have no desire to start collecting mono records so things like mono carts, amps with mono switches, etc are of no real interest to me. It'd probably be this one mono record. I've lightly browsed some of the archived threads regarding mono & mono with stereo cart but decided to post this anyway. System as follows: 1200GR, AT540ML>Schiit Mani (upgrade phono pre coming in a few months if you think that matters for this topic)>Schiit Freya +>Schiit Vidar>JBL L82's. Is it worth the $50+ to buy this record...will it sound halfway decent in your opinion? Yes, all subjective but looking for those opinions and any actual experience would be great.
