    Yup, could do with a shim to be fair.

    It doesn't sound light though which I would have thought with the tail slightly up. I'm going to try and sort the leveling issue before I put too many more hours on it as I don't want to break it in at anything other than dead level.

    I can use an additional mat on top of my standard one but the sound will certainly suffer. Hence I'm after a 7mm thick mat . . . search is so far elusive . . .

    I've actually emailed AT about as to why the TT in standard form (with no VTA adjustment) is designed to run its homogenized cart (95ex) with such a tracking angle. No response yet though.

    I've yet to hear a less than incredible (given the price) sounding AT OCxx cart. Top marks to AT as usual for price/performance ratio.

    Wish I'd have bought two for that price now!

    The 2mm shim should get it pretty close, then again thereís always going to be a little variation with different pressing thicknesses but it will be pretty marginal.
    I notice Amazon have returned the price to RRP.

    A couple of years ago I had an ATLP120 which did have arm height adjustment, that came standard with the AT95E but even with the arm set as low as it would go it still wasnít low enough to get the arm parallel to the record with the supplied mat, mind you I never used it as it was a DJ type slip mat. I used a 3mm thick cork mat with a 2mm thick acrylic mat on top of it which did the trick nicely. A friend of mine who has a Technics SL1200 found it was exactly the same and he had to shim his cartridge.

    The new At95ex stylus has now run in and it certainly is an improvement on the AT95e. The At95e sounds a bit thin and shrill by comparison whereas the At95ex is more full bodied. It has a better midrange and has a more solid stereo image. Detail is there but there is a more noticeable presence and body to vocals. The whole presentation is a bit smoother and sure footed. IGD is way better and some of the ragged top end and tracking on some vinyl has all but gone.

    Very Impressed especially as it cost only a few more quid than the standard At95e.
