cart height


Ok. My cart spec states the height from stylus tip to top of cart is 15.5mm. My same cart with retip is 16.15mm from top to bottom. Will this make a difference? I am asking because I am having a sibilance problem.
Thanks, Doug

It will make a difference, but how significant is hard to predict. If your arm allows for height adjustment to set the VTA, try lowering the arm to reduce sibilance.
Sibilance can be based on that but normally it is wrong alignment or mismatch cartridge and arm.
The cart is a Soundsmith retipped Denon DL-S1, alignment with a Mint protractor on a Audiomods Classic arm. I tried 1.15 to 1.5g VTF as well.
