Hello Wayne, Good to hear from ya!
Yes, I still have this Arm, perhaps you were thinking of someone else?
I've done so much searching, I've even read a post from you 2 years ago on the Asylum asking similar questions.
Akin to asking a person to decipher the Dead Sea Scrolls, nobody really seems to know zip about this arm? Doubtful Audioquest would be much help at this point, but I suppose an email couldn't hurt?
All I'd like knowing is what viscosity was used, and not looking for any freebies from them.
I've read countless posts, and I gather that a damping fluid in essence, is nothing more than a poor band aid trying to either make a bad arm work better, or alter a good arm to work with a Cartridge of different-incompatible compliance perhaps?
Even with the right fluid, experimentation-results is iffy, and with the wrong fluid, this will really be a shot in the dark.
Most look disfavorably upon damping fluids, and I suppose it is largely dependent on what Arm. I know I've even read a post from Doug Deacon, about damping in a Triplanar, and I believe he said it sucked the life right out of the Arm. (sorry Doug if my information is vague, or perhaps erroneous?)
I'm actually not in desperate need for this Fluid, but it was just the tweaker in me, thinking about trying this again on this Arm for the heck of it?
The little Vials they supplied with this Arm was a one shot deal, and that's been gone from the kit, and used up over 10 years ago. Mark
