    lol the forums are full of them.
    one aspect of set up i really concentrate on now is azimuth,i dont mean looking at the cartridge body using a mirror,i mean really getting a good look at the stylus tip with a loupe in relation to the record groove,once there then its very fine adjustment until the sound is centered and focused,ie a singers vocals are dead in the middle and you can almost imagine the words being formed on their lips.setting that is a nightmare unless like me you have an ortofon cartridge with the 3 ridges on the cartridge top.

    One that puzzles me is SRA, how did we suddenly become obsessed with this and how did people used to set it before the onset of technology allowing us to magnify and check it via PC software?
