    Yes, makes sense, I suppose ... like the early SME 3009 having foam in the arm-tube.
    Anyway, glad you found out before my compulsive garden cane whittling caused premature blindness

    Quick question ... with your mono cartridges, do you play them through standard stereo settings, or do you need to press the 'mono' button on the pre-amp?

    With some phono stages you get a very slight ground hum with a single coil mono cartridge like the Miyajimas if you wire it up as normal using the four pins, so I used to get into the habit of pressing the mono button. I haven't noticed any hum with the 912 but when I remember I still do it anyway out of habit.
