    Yes they are fussy to setup as you say, the stylus is so small its almost invisisble to the naked eye, once locked in though they are magical .

    Thanks for the advice guys, I think the ART9 is going to be the one I go for, I noticed that someone who has a room at the WAM show is running one so I'm going to make a bee line for their room and have a listen

    The ART9 arrives tomorrow, I could do with some advice on how to best match it to my Audiomods Series 5 arm

    OK so the arm has a bag with extra head weights and a variable mass counterweight, I'll need to match the new cart and alter the mass of the tonearm with the weights so there's some synergy, or am I just spouting crap

    Well, the usual rule of thumb for cartridges is making sure the weight is closer to the pivot what the end of the arm.

    So, if the cart is heavy and the weight is nearly off the stub, you need to go heavier. If the cart is light, and the weight is right up to the pivot, go a bit lighter with the weight.

    There is a theory that the closer your weight is to the pivot, the better sound you will get. That said, I only have one weight, it's near the rear of the arm and think it's just perfect lol

    My fault,I made a comment on FB. Add the heavy ally weight and it'll sing. If your unsure/not trusting, fit with nothing and blutack the weight on top to try. I started with OC9 and PTG's. When I first got the arm found it bass light, adding the weight filled it out.

    You heard my Art9 at Kegworth, look at the specs of the arm (Mission Mechanic) the mismatch is off the scale, yet I still put another 3g of brass nuts, not a lot of this makes sense. See below

    I know, for years we've been told to get the weight near the bearing, drop the weight to put it in the same plane as the cart, but if you read Jeff's 'literature' he doesn't agree. Can't say I've made scientific tests to the theory, but with weights at the head end there isn't much choice.

    *Jeff uses constrained lead counterweight, very similar to the Zeta and Mechanic.
    **Just off to check Audiomods literature, memory plays games

    Copied form AM site

    "A good indicator of when extra mass is needed is the bass performance. If bass seems light, try adding one of the headshell shims."
