I also have ascend acoustics sierra towers (with raal ribbons). Just upgraded from moon 110 LP v2 phono preamp to PS audio stellar phono preamp. Did it due to Fremer's unusual all in review of that product. WOW!The difference is startling. I got a... 
Off center (not bent!) stylus?
If any cantilever of mine looked like that I would send it to Peter Lederman for an inspection. 
About to invest in room treatments; GIK, RealTraps, DIY -- what is your experience?

Why so many angry audiophiles?

Does Age Matter?
Ultrasonic cleaning does wonders for background noise. All my 2,000 vinyl have been washed. It's part of the process and I actually love doing it. Every 9 albums I get go through the process, takes me about half an hour. Piece of cake and amazing ...
