  1. This ^ should be accurate before making any further assessments. Chances are correct alignment will require the cartridge to not be square. Might explain the channel imbalance too...

    SUT experiences

    It certainly does seem popular these days for MC users to prefer SUT/MM over MC stages but in my experience there is a degree of 'romance' involved with the transformer and/or valve approach and I don't feel this solution is really representing the true sound of the cartridge. Similarly I don't mean to deny others experiences and at the end of the day, if it sounds good to the user they have achieved their goal. However, personally having tried a million and one combinations of SUTs, head amps and phono stages, in terms of accuracy I prefer a modern low noise MC stage. That said, I also like dip switches as it's a convenient way to switch from MC to MM
  3. As above. After an Ortofon Quintet Blue upwards. Ta.
