Ah I thought that you had bombed an Elys ,hence the bag of washers bit.
AT better than the Red , well only your ears will tell you what you prefer. Will be different thats for sure.
I only suggested it as a get out of gaol cheaply cart. I cant get my head around folk not carrying a spare cart.
Have you been eating Cnos wasps.
Ahh I need to update my signature — I ended up sending the Rega back after they couldn't sort a working cartridge for it — I just got frustrated.
Purchased a 2M Red locally today and will fit it when I get back from work.
As for the leveling — I realise now that it would have been better to tap the holes to M6. I may buy some M6 inserts — or else glue the bolts in.
I checked the thing with a digital level and it's dead level, possibly surprisingly.

If you have, I will take a very dim view of it!

Lo mate. Yeah I should co-co anaw. Nowts sacred these days.
Could be worth it if you go the sorbothane route via a sub platform. Easy oversight James,tis all a learning vertical innit .
You are right, as it only has three feet I expect the one on its own will compress a bit more.
So I got my new stylus.
They sent me the wrong sorbothane feet I had ordered — hemispheres instead of pads.
Using the run-out-groove and turn up the volume and tap on the table technique there's still significant coupling.
Let's see what the right sorbothane solves when it turns up…
I've decided to order some M6 inserts to screw in to the acrylic— and some grub screws to glue in to the feet— height adjustable.
All this messing about . . . why not just order some 'Black Ravioli' . . . ?????
Those look expensive! And… mine is more… or as much… decorative :)
Has anyone tried real ravioli?!
Althought no doubt we'd then argue about the impact of the filling on sound quality (mushroom probably best - squishy and all that. And don't you dare ask which type of mushroom!)
Sorbothane and other polymers will only ever get you so far.
For effective de-coupling you probably need to go suspension by whichever means, springs, leafs or magnetic. A wall mounted shelf may get you some way there too, depending on the wall ...
Pretty ... and pretty proud of it
I've ordered 4 cans —
Got this today:
A lot less surface noise, trying the knock test on the run out groove and nothing comes through even at high volume.
More importantly music is fuller. Considering I'm using exactly the same cartridge that was on my Pro-Ject — could never have imagined the difference.
Not got my sorbothane yet.
