Re: Anti skating

I have tried to dublicate the results from today and at first I failed but now I have found a flat enough record to get the mentioned movement slowly towards the center with my anti skating force set by ear. This tells me that it can be difficult to find the perfect vinyl record to use for this test...

Re: Anti skating

Great Charlie1 that you found my post useful!

The reason I find this method interesting is that with some carts I find it quite hard to find the optimum anti skating force by ear (harder with the Klyde, easier with the AT33).

Anti skating

I think we all here agree that listening for the best setup of the tonearm is the best way to do it. So it was with interest that I listened to the explanation given in the video below (start at around 3.30). https://youtu.be/6pmD1gIL_cU Afterwards I checked my setup (found by ear) of my anti skatin...

Re: The Mighty AT95E Becomes The AT-VM95E

Came across a post on another forum claiming that the AT95 needs a loading of 27k to perform at it’s best. Not the usual 47k?

Re: The Mighty AT95E Becomes The AT-VM95E

However, I am missing quite a lot of body and weight to the music which does hamper my enjoyment of many songs. Stepping up from 1.5 (1.1 a/s) to 1.7g (1.3 a/s) does help a little. Moving my Keilidhs from 24cm to 10cm to the rear wall doesn't seem to make any difference which I find really odd. The...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Lovely music Thomas. It is actually a shame that we cannot see the system (unless you are hiding something!). Just (dog) food for thought. Ron The Mon I was doing what I like to do best: trying to make this a cheerful place to be. What I like about this forum is the feeling of understanding and comm...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

So, why do Audio Technica recommend a tracking force from 1.8 to 2.2 g for the AT VM95E when we here are talking about 1.5 to 1.7g on the tip?

Very interesting read Lejonklou.

Yes, I forgot the vital.

So, we are back to what we do here. Listen and compare. :-)

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

So, it seems that to get the most music out of the groove one should choose a cart with an elliptical tip and in the more expensive end a cart with contact line.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

The 95E has a fuller and more Linn like sound. The music comes alive. The 95ML sounds more clinical compared to the 95E.

Maybe I should try “downgrading” to the AT33EV next time. :-)

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Lovely music Charlie1.

I love the Nait1 for what it does. No fancy dress or makeup. It just makes me dive into the music only to surface again when it stops.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I would leave the Y cable behind and concentrate on the 12/160 combo. I find it enjoyable and can relax when listening to it.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

And like the previous clips I can still hear things in the non hicap clip I like more.

I really liked the tightness of the 110 but how to determine what is best is a more tricky question. In the end the person in front of the system has to find the enjoyment.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Getting past me laughing at the upward bass guitar slide in the previous clips (sounded a bit like a “muu-uu” from a cow) it is easy in these latest clips to appreciate the contribution of the hicap.
