    Any hints re adjusting the Soundsmith cartridge? I am pretty new to this so any pointers would be appreciated. Thanks!
    Nice

    If you are refering to the overall set up of the catridge, VPI provide a jig that is very easy to use.

    You just need to exercise some care when aligning the cartridge. VPI have some useful set up guides on Youtube...

    General set-up is not much of an issue, but the fine tuning is a different story, such as fine adjusting VTA and azimuth. As far as I understand, with the MIMC cartridge, adjusting azimuth for channel balance can result in very bad alignment. It seems that adjustments are mainly by ear, and I am concerned that I will adjust to what I am used to, rather than what the TT & cartridge are capable.

    Good choice of Cartridge, I have a friend who swears by his, and has great reviews. Happy listening.

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