    One other thing to check is the arm position. Normally it's recommended to get the arm tube parallel to the deck so check it is first. If it is then try lowering the pivot end of the arm, this usually increases the bass. If the headshell end is lower this usually decreases bass, increases treble.

    On a shelf or table, is it well isolated from feedback?
    It's on a 4-shelf 'rack' and is on the top shelf.
    Thanks

    (Concerning the 3-letter company whose name one dare not mention. I was unaware of breaking any rules. I understand the antipathy towards a certain individual and his company, however, I was not reviewing/extolling/criticising said company - just saying that someone said they could be worth a look. Apologies anyway, but let's keep things in proportion.)

    Thanks
