    I now have the cartridge VTF towards the top of the specified range and the VTA slghtly tail down, as per the instructions to help lift the bass..
    Hi - I'm another extremely satisfied customer with an AT33PTG/II with no plans to change it at all!
    I note here that you have the VTA 'tail down' - could I ask where this is recommended?

    It was my phono stage manufacturer, to lift the bass when using their unit, but since changing the valves in my Pre I am running approx level.

    One is being made for demos etc. Maybe Alan can accommodate that for you. Give him a shout.

    Well I was sad to see the AT33PTG/II go , it was only on loan, but what a cracker it is. If it suits your set up and you have 400 ish to spend, look no further. It will be my next cartridge purchase for sure (No pun intended).

    That's a shame Ken. I was going to ask what gain did you end up setting on your Aqvox for the AT33?
    Cheers, Jeff

    I found 4.5dB worked best and was the most neutral sounding. Downstream gear, especially the pre amp will dictate where it needs to be and personal taste comes into it, but that worked for me.

    Hi Alan
    I like it, very flexible and with a good screen, tonally richer/warmer than the Silver I had been using, plenty of detail evident and nice bass weight. It's cheap as chips and I prefer it to the much more expensive Silver, which has a great top end, but not as natural in the mids. Its fairly low capacitance.
    The Sommer is only 4.6mm dia so you can squeeze two cables into one 5 pin DIN Tone arm plug. I prefer two separate cables/screens for left/right channels rather than star quad with 4 conductors under one screen. Less chance of cross talk.
    Got mine from Studio Spares, they had it listed under Broadcast quality miniature Mic/patch cable, but it has " Goblin Highflex TT-Phone Cable" printed on the jacket.
    I also use the Sommer 110 ohm AES/EBU digital XLR cable, which is very good as well.

    Cheers
