Have you considered modding the OL Silver. A new wiring harness ,one piece from cartridge leads to your pre, i would use the cryoed Cardas wire/bullets. That should give you tighter bass and more highend content. Also maybe a tonearm mounting board made of a different material(acrylic, wood,bamboo,etc) would change the sound more to your liking. I have a bronze endstub and dropped counterweight on my RB250 and that made a huge difference in my set up. After doing all these mods, if you still are not happy with the sound, a fully modded OL Silver should be easy to sell. Just a thought. I like Flyingred's suggestion of the Hadcock GH 242 although i'd probably try the GH 228 because it will drop right in to the OL hole. The XX2 is an excellent cartridge, maybe a different phono stage would be in order, you didn't mention what you are using. I think cartridge and phono stage are more important than the arm. I use a Dynavector P-75 phono stage in the "phono enhance" mode, not with a XX2, but a Karat and a couple Denons and AT-33PTG and think it is a great bargain for $600. I also have a Wright 200C tube MM stage and Bent Audio transformer for about$1700.! They both allow you to fine tune just about any cartridge to optimum performance.
