Clearaudio Maestro / Satisfy alignment issue
Hey Everyone, I have the Marantz TT-15s1 with the Clearaudio Satisfy tonearm and the Clearaudio Maestro wood cart. It's a superb sounding combination, but I've always been slightly annoyed by the fact that I cannot get the overhang on the cart to be big enough to get the proper Baerwald alignment. Even with the cart pushed all the way forward in the headshell the stylus still falls about 2-3 mm short of the arc at the inner groove radius. I suspect it would work with Stevenson alignment with less required overhang, but I've always sort of settled for it being a "bit off" rather than use the Stevenson.
The fact that I can't get the alignment right seems really odd to me. The tonearm and the cart are both made by Clearaudio, so you'd assume they are compatible. Furthermore, if you use the Clearaudio alignment protractor, they specific an even larger overhang than Baerwald, which would be thoroughly impossible to obtain with this cart/tonearm combo. I've checked the spindle-to-pivot distance, and it is spot on 222 mm, so there doesn't seem to be an issue there.
So... What's going on here? Anyone had similar issues?
