Tone arm holes do not line up - best way to attach TT?
I cannot post a pic, right?  
Tone arm holes do not line up - best way to attach TT?
The only way to get teh cart to line up is to not have the P2P as specified. If the pivot point is moved a few inches off the Reed specification then the cart lines up. But I cannot have both the P2P and the cart line up.

"In reality, if you have the P2S set correctly, that should result in close to proper stylus overhang, and you should not need to do much twisting of the cartridge body at all, with respect to the Reed headshell, to get you into good alignment."Co...

Thanks for all the troubleshooting with so limited facts. The cartridge is Triangle Arts Apollo. The TT is Hanss. I only exceeded the weight of 2 grams as an experiment to see what it would take to get the stylus to sit in the grove. It went aroun...

Thanks for the encouragement. I was beginning to get the impression that the vinyl hobby was for machinist who loved to tinker and then played music when they got bored :) On a more serious note, I did, in fact, use a piece of walnut and cantileve...

Thanks for all your help. My pivot to spindle distance is correct according to the template that came with the Reed. I mentioned the 6" away from the TT to indicate how far away the arm would have to be to fit into the alignment grid. So I guess m...

Any ideas on cartridge alignment? I spend an hour on forums and youtube and no one addresses the issue when the alignment falls outside the ability of the arm head-shell to adjust. Thanks.

The fO.q tape is available on ebay - $57 for a sheet. Does that sound about right?

OK. The stereophile article does not show the other side where there is another mount that has 3 threaded bolt holes. I just used a screw and successfully attached the arm into one of the holes. The other holes do not line up but the one screw is ...

Hi. Thanks for your input. It is a Hanss t-30 (sorry for error) It does have an arm board that I can drill. I do not have a tap and die set so I'd end up using screws instead of machined bolts. I used double sided tape on my previous arm and it he... 
Synergistic Research Atmosphere XL4 no longer works with Apply software update?
I heard back from SR the next day after I wrote:Hi Dan,We do have the fix. It is a firmware update that has to be done at our factory. Peter will get you an RMA # to reference so we can get it updated and shipped back to you. Please let us know... 
I wonder why......
J.Clip - Thanks for the post. I had the same thoughts and it's nice to share them. Maybe it is me but there seems to be more and more curmudgeon remarks these days. We are all friends, right? Let's have fun with each other. I'm so grateful to be a... 
Reasonable high end interconnects: without breaking the bank

Best audio tweak ever, especially for the over 60s
I read this, it sounds so logical that I bought an ear cleaning kit and then read up on it. Probably not a great idea:"According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology ears ideally never need to be cleaned “for 99 percent of people." There is a... 
Reasonable high end interconnects: without breaking the bank
Fstein - the Mogami argument is perfect logic and caused me to outfit with them when I could have afforded better cables. Taking that and other “logical” approachs kept me in mid-fi for longer than I wished. Someone finally got me to try better ca...
