What is it in MM that can give me goose-bumps? 🤔
@lewm  Yes, I should have included IM and MI types in the post's heading. No argument there. ✔️Michélle 🇿🇦  
Is my anti-skating too strong.
Cognitive Dissonance... to say it again. No logical, rational argument will overcome it, as it locks one into ones belief system. MC, what we have here is just that now. So how to overcome Cognitive Dissonance? By telling the opposing party(ies) a... 
Is my anti-skating too strong.
What we have here is, it seems, that what one WANTS to believe - one WILL believe. A case of Cognitive Dissonance - maybe my own? Speaking from experience MC is correct that point A the stylus tip to point B the fulcrum of the tonearm bearing (hor... 
Is my anti-skating too strong.
@millercarbon 😅I do admire your patience good man, though obviously not everyone shares this notion. And that a Shibata stylus shows more skating pull/force on a blank record surface, "due to the design of its sides when in a groove..." Beats me, ...

@inna So much one could say on this subject... 😏 But many thanks for your enthusiastic response! 😊 Michélle 🇿🇦  
Is my anti-skating too strong.
One added point, I think has not addressed. The OP is mentioning an Ortofon Quintet Black cartridge, yes?This might play into the MC / Lewn discussion too. For some interesting reason - when checking for the most suitable anti-skating force with t... 
Are your current amps and other gear the best you've ever had?
Oh yes, I'm content - mo betta be!As I almost sweated blood, and needed plenty of nudging, and what not, to let go the equivalent of $US 11'000.00 in ZAR. This for my still fine cooking PassLabs X350.5. This was back in mid 2008. Nothing helps for...

@chakster and allVery dedicated responses, oh yes!Also the sharing of set-ups for perspective.Thank you!My system is by far more 'stream-lined', far less dedicated, far less high-end, and more to my current room (and finacial) abilities. So, only ... 
Audible wow on Well Tempered TT
@lewm Oh, and one more thing, you are seriously suggesting an e.g. 40cu compliance will only apply vertically ?!? 🤔Looking/feeling the Ortofon M20 E super or FL super (stylus+cantilever) inserts does not convince me of that take, at all - as it is... 
Audible wow on Well Tempered TT
@lewm Ehhhh, OF COURSE! and very much meant, the stylus IS attached to the cantilever!!! 😏 AND OF COURSE still nicely tracking, following the record groove also! The stylus AND cantilever! VISIBLY moves about, deflects visibly, laterally, from the... 
Audible wow on Well Tempered TT
Funny coincidence it may be, since I just now been playing two records (at least) I can hear what sounds like speed instability too. On my Ortofon M20 (MI type) I changed the FL super stylus insert to the E super. This one has a VERY high complian... 
Who else is using old cables/interconnects, and is happy?
Oh yes, old stuff all throughout. Speakers : Straight Wire 'Waveguide' (using FuruTech spade and 30° angled screw tight banana type connectors).Pre- to Poweramp : OLD versions of XLR Transparent MusicLink Ultra. LP to phono boards in Preamp : Vd H... 
Pivot to Spindle distance
If it really bugs you so much?!? Get an SME tonearm - any! No headshell slots and P2S adjustable in a more wide range than you’ll ever need.Problem solved? 🤔Of course not, as per standard, every suggestion has an infinite number of new and other s... 
Pivot to Spindle distance
@millercarbonI like the way you put it - and phrased it. Who CAN argue the point(s) you make?I ... at least can't - and I won't. 👍🥂 Michélle 🇿🇦  
Takedown of pricey servers, streamers OCD HiFi guy
@hilde45 OPI can so agree with what you say - and how you phrase it. I wish I had your command of the English language in making your point, 10/10!No warble, no waffle and put so succinctly - that - is a gift! 😊 Michélle 🇿🇦
