My XV1-s also likes to play with the back of the arm jacked up higher than the front. First is it looked a bit odd, but it sounds wonderful parked at that vta setting. Sam

Shouldn't be up much, but yes. Mine likes a little positive VTA.
P.S. Don't worry about it too much until you get about 50 hours or so on it. Then you can drop VTF down around 1.88-1.93 or so and revisit VTA. Also, by then you should be able to lighten up on AS as well. I'm finding around 1 gram +/- for AS works very well for most LPs. As always, listen for mistracking then add a bit more.
