    Well,after having the G800 for ages now,and thinking the stylus was damaged,i today got it out for another look at it.

    When i first set it up,it sounded very sibilant,with insistant highs,so thought it was damaged.I then got a vintage shure SC35C and forgot about the G800,as the SC35C is perfect for what i mainly listen to.

    So today i cleaned it,set it up as marco described in his first post.The sibilance was still there,but not as bad as i remember.Everything else sounded fine and was hinting that there was more to come.Reading through the thread,i was reminded that marco added a 3grm weight and heavier c/w.

    Now i don't have a heavier c/w,but i did stick a 5 pence piece on the headshell and voila,siblance gone!! Now i can hear what marco has been going on about with this cart,It sounds very good,happy days

    Nice one, Darren. I knew you'd get there in the end!

    The G800 is a fine cartridge, WHEN used properly in a system designed to optimise its sonic performance. You'll find that most of the cartridges from that era like a bit of mass, as they'd originally have partnered some pretty heavy tonearms.

    Now, if you want to take things to the next level, send it to Dom for a re-tip and/or an upgrade of its cantilever to something a little more 'exotic' - then watch her fly!

    Marco.

    Erm yeah,i can say i will do something,but it might not actually manifest for about a year

    I think i'm going to get the mike new bearing first,as he has a good offer atm.
    I promised myself,that my speakers were the last big purchase for me this year,oh well

    I will eventually send it to dom for a fettle,not likely this year though!!

    What i will do though,is find a better headshell and weight and maybe cartridge leads.

    Do you think it's worth adding the Heavier c/w? I'm sure there is one in the classifieds.
