    Well, the tonearm is not quite high enough, but it''ll do. The cart alignment seems almost spot on. I first played a disco/funk track by Donald Byrd - Dominoes - itself a very uplifting fine example of the genre, and it slightly blew me away, the bass is so good, the whole sound has a propulsive quality, of course I am listening to it through the JVC, so much of it will be from that, but first impressions are this thing boogies seriously, the sound is visceral, has quite an impact. Needs refining, but think I'm a fan.
    Is this with the right angle tonearm cable? If it is and the cartridge down at the rear then be careful with warped records if you have any, best to get a one with a straight DIN if you intend to use long term.

    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes

    Yes it is, only using it until I buy a straight one, so just a few days. The bass is overwhelming at the minute, and the sound is a bit raw, so may'be correct tonearm height will correct that, it is down a fair bit at the back, still listenable though.

    Yes precisely that.
