To date, I've used the standard VPI cone feet on my TT to adjust for the slight level inaccuracy of the built-in shelf in my listening room. However, to level properly it left two of the cones toward what I would consider a bit of an extreme with respect to a decently firm contact with the TT.
Thinking of replacing the cones with the VPI flat feet. To those that have these, do they allow (and are they designed) to be used for levelling? I understand within reason; the amount of levelling I'm talking about is on the order of say 3-4 mm max or so.
Hiendmuse is correct. The original VPI cones become increasingly unstable as you adjust them...the new feet don't. In that respect, the sound is improved, however, they are not a major step up like the SDS or rim drive is.
