    Brian, I think I'd take the advice of going back to the older headshell to see if things work out. Your issues with sibilance may not be a bad thing for the rest of us as it shows that the m55e might not like too much additional mass in the head shell. If the sibilance goes then it looks like extra mass is the problem.

    What cables are you using from the deck to the amp Brian?
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    The M55e and At95 are not particularly prone to sibilance even when set up badly! Severe VTA may cause sibilance but if your tonearm is generally level then this should not be an issue.

    So I think it must be something to do with capacitance between arm/ cartridge and headshell or phono cable from TT to amp. Have you tried other cables yet Brian? Can you try different phono stage ?

    Try a pure copper conductor lead mate. No plating.

    Can't hurt to give it a try Brian. I have heard a bright character imparted to the sound of cartridges when using interconnects with pure silver or silver plated conductors. That could be causing the sibilance or stridence you are hearing.
