    It is working very nicely with the 774, I'm getting quite good at setting it up now There is a clue as to when it's at the right VTA, if the bottom of the cartridge body is dead level with the record surface then the VTA should be about right. Graph paper and a mirror work perfectly.....I should give the credit for this to Jamie, he's a clever old thing.

    VTA needs may vary from one cartridge to another and not all necessarily give their best when level (parallel to the record). I experiment to find what seems best.
    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!

    Very true, they all have their optimum settings. The 2M Black is well known for being very fussy about VTA and the parallel cartridge body is a very good guide for it although it's still worth trying slightly lower or higher VTA.
