    I use a Hydra type plug so it all earths there, including the TT Its always quiet, but I admit earthing is another black art.

    I have had a shuffle around in the rack and found positioning of the Paradise critical. I bought an Opus CD player in the hope of better distribution on my rack (2 half width cases, transport + PS) but the Paradise wasn't happy till it was on the shelf alone.

    I found it susceptible to hum from adjacent to rather than above/below, I s'pose motors and torrid have differing electromagnetic fields?

    Lol, at Mr dogs we found 10 ohm to be easily identifiable on a low impedance cart. My benz LP is a honey badger, it doesn't give a shit, 200-800r will do.

    I’ve got Art 9, but my AT37 is probably closer spec to your 7? 0.1 output, 3ohm internal resistance, you really appreciate how quiet the Paradise is, looks like I could do some tweaking ��

    Mark, I have some RCA plugs with double screw terminals on the back, less hassle than soldering and a quick way to get dialled in.

    these spring loaded could be even easier
