Record cutting system introduced by RCA Victor in 1962 that supposedly reduced tracking distortion by computer controlling cutting characteristics to overcome the imagined faults of playback equipment. Considered a disaster by everyone except the New York Times writer Hans Fantel who wrote the blurb inserted in all of the early pressings, it brought the golden age of RCA Victor Living Stereo to a screeching halt. Because there is a possibility that this system was used on later re-masterings of the early Living Stereo records, collectors try to obtain only early pressings of these masterpieces--usually called "Shaded Dogs" The words "Stereo-Orthophonic" are on the record label and sometimes the cover of the "good" Living Stereo albums.
