The seller may have moved the arm mount out by 3mm, of course.
    Chap with the Linn Axis / Jelco SA-750D and Denon 103 has put his price up!

    I did ask him whether he had used the correct mounting distance .. he hasn't of course but insists that he 'hears no distortion' despite the fact the cartridge shows no sight of the pushing back/twisting you'd need to do to minimise it when the arm is at the wrong distance. Don't you hate some of these ebay tossers? Some poor bugger will buy this and not know why he's not getting a decent sound out of it.

    Not on ebay, but there's a nice little Fidelity Research FRT-3 SUT available on Lenco Heaven at £200 in the sales area. Offered by 'bluetomgold'.

    I regard these as the most economic entry into the world of 'proper' SUT's. They sound rather good, I've owned three and they worked well with every low output MC I tried.

    Hmm. They and the Sony branded version were about thirty quid when they first hit the market if I recall. Tried them (very briefly).
