    Tonearm update...

    I got asked to write some comments upon the tonearm update from last night. Well, the deck's the best I've heard it. It's very subtle and I think the best way to describe it is that the deck has more poise within the soundstage. The background is black. Surface noise is extremely low to non-existant and on old vinyl massively reduced. Sibilance is virtually non-existant but does occur from time to time. I think the two main variables are coupling rigidity and parallel vinyl clearence height. I've also been messing around with the volts going into the motor and I'm down to 200 and I seem to be getting more detail out of the vinyl. I previously liked 215-220 volts but the Lenco is now spinning with 200 volts going through the motor and sounding great. I've still not tried the Mpingo spacer, maybe that's something for this coming week.

    I appreciate this Andy . My equipment for setting this cartridge up is very basic . Coupled with my lack of knowledge and patience , it's not a good mix

    Just a quick question . Bearing in mind that this is brand new , does anyone know if cleaning the record will help with sibilance ?

    Are you still using the M55e Andy ? If so the Jico SAS should be a big jump again

    Brian,

    I have a lit stylus magnifying tool that can let you examine it for any problems.
    Happy to let you have a go with it.

    In that case I'm thinking that maybe you should go back to a standard headshell and hear how that sounds before going any further Brian. Is the M55 the only cartridge you have?
    Ralph.
