    Piano Middle C

    In listening to a vinly LP last night of piano music I noticed that the notes aound middle C were slightly distorted.

    I haven't come to a conclusion yet but I have heard piano will reveal acoustic and other problems in a system.

    I am assuming that it may be caused by one or more of the follwoing:

    1) The recording itself
    2) The cartridge (Grado Gold)
    3) The speakers (ML ESL's)
    4) Room acoustics..

    Any thing I may have missed and any thoughts on this?
    ARC VT100 MKIII , ARC LS-15 , Anthem PRE1P Phono Stage
    Acoustics Signature TT , Adcom GCD-750 CD
    Tascam 130 Cassette Deck ,Transparent Audio Plus Speaker Cable , Transparent Audio Plus Balanced interconnects
    Martin Logan Ascents , HG 10 SX Velodyne Sub
    Pioneer TX-9100 Tuner

    Noo Joisey. Youse got a problem wit dat?

    The cartridge alignment or tracking force?

    but, vinyl being what it is, the record itself is always suspect.

    Speakers capable of good articulate bass is essential to producing realistic piano sound, system synergy is also necassary. Without the above, piano may sound good but never quite right.
