TT's are Black Magic
« on: January 02, 2018, 09:11:27 PM »
I got a new RP3, the one with the 330 arm. i put the Ortofon Black onto the arm set it all up and found it to be noisy. Off I went to Mr HiPhi, setup checked everything and off i go plug it all back in and disappointed again. While at Mr HiPhi we set the cart to the recommended down force and VTA. I did get a set of VTA spacers and decided to try a lower VTA. It was a bit better but still noisy and no vibe. out of desperation i decided to try the Ortofon Bronze, same thing, no vibe. Changed back to the Black and set a tiny bit more down force, low and behold noise was gone and vibe is ALIVE.

I am now convinced that there is no proper science behind these things, it is all Dark Arts.

I am going to get some music muti to make it sound really high end.

Supermoon is coming... find yourself a virgin mermaid and make her cry... collect the tears.

I must admit, I'm a little surprised that you ask me what to do with tears.
You seem to have missed the point - virgin mermaid, hewooo...!?

Agh, well, then the option "B" - dip the cartridge stylus into mermaid tears...
