Tonearm suggestion for Garrard 301 schedule ll oil bearing?
IMO from point of effective massGroove master IIor SME 3012 but R version or early versions with stainless steel tube. 
Measuring TT Speed
In my phone LG v30+ RPM metter shows 32.83 instead of 33.33Both my turntables has strobe's and one of the even has custom built. And if I do measure friends machines I am getting the same error always so for me it's usable but it's not measurement... 
TONEARM DAMPING : DAMPED OR NOT ? ? USELESS ? ? WELCOMED ? ?
tyray, in my opinion antistatic effect  is very small and it's more advertising gimmick. I am a little bit confused why none of MC cartridges uses brush. Maybe there is some interference. For high compliant ones it should be very OK...

Tonearm superiority isn't meant by tracking everything with all cartridges. It should do it also proper way controlling resonances and going fluently via deformations. If to use only tracking test Telarc, HiFI news or even better Ortofon test reco...

Mijostyn - it can be done via transfer energy towards stub and absorbing it there. They do occur always.If we speak about high fidelity everything matters you can't void and say that they are not important.

for finish, I do promise never argue again, here.spring in tonearm - doesn’t do anything if you have completely flat record.But in case of valleys/bumps it helps (short version). Also spring has some impact as damping.So in my not perfect world sp...

Raul, your know how is very poor especially in tonearms. If you own tonearm it doesn't mean that it's the best in the world.

Mijostyn, you are putting damping and effective weight into one bin. That is not correct.All materials have some damping qualities and choosed by designer not only by desired weight.

No don't own and I don't want to buy Japanese Max tonearm. It will make my distorted music sound bad.

So Raul you don't know answer into simple question? You can walk on water?Your question about my system do you think that it will help you to gain knowledge? Do you know the meaning of world gentleman?I can say for you phono part Garrard 301 refur...

Raul I can say that you like too much damping and you are losing some signal... so your Micro Seiki is dull. So, Raul, for what spring is used? I can help you it was used in Empire tonearm and Ikeda copied it. It was used in Gray Research 103-SL i...

I do remmember many years ago I have read that Thomas Shick removed spring from FR64 and it was claimed as tuning. Raul said that FR 64 is crap, especially FR66  as it is completely wrong.It’s interesting how chaotic variables can make system in t...

noromance - there is major difference750 - ball bearings850 - knife edge bearingsif to look into all knife edge bearings - SAEC, SME and new Jelco series all of them looks ok without extra damping.Ikeda/FR uses spring  + weight for that purposeDyn... 
TONEARM DAMPING : DAMPED OR NOT ? ? USELESS ? ? WELCOMED ? ?
As I do have this Jelco 750EB with "top cup" - I can say that if not damped it's rather inferior with high compliance cartridges (no silicon oil in cup) With heavyweights/low compliance like SPU difference isn't so obvious, it takes time to unders... 
Upgrade my tone arm?
mijostyn, no it isn't.
