Post Subject: Clarity vs. VTA vs. CharacterPosted by Paul S on: 6/20/2008
Romy, you have said you are impatient with VTA, so I wonder if you have wondered enough to try playing with this just a little, to hear for yourself if the added clarity of the corrector includes VTA differences and/or if VTA has anything to do with what you are or are not hearing from your unit.

Have you noticed/compared the degree of the effects with spherical vs. line contact styluses?

I am not talking about "putting the pivot end of the arm downhill", or anything that provincial.  I am talking about the actual record to record angles becoming audible.

Weirdest case would be different sounds when playing the same record with the same cartridge, etc. twice in a row and getting different sounds; but I presume you are not experiencing this?

If sound merely differs record to record, welcome to the club...

Best regards,
Paul S
