PL12D - Fine Tuning
I have a Pioneer PL12D with a Shure M97xE.
Been playing with alignment to eliminate inner groove distortion, based on some great advice sourced on here and links therein, some specifically aimed at my cartridge which was ideal.
The IGD was fairly noticable before, so on the advice a read somewhere I introduced a little twst in the alignment, rather than having the cart square in the headshell.
This has made a huge difference (for the better). If you view he headshell from directly above, the cart retaining screws centres are probably about 1mm offset.
All that said, there is still a trace of IGD - usualy story, slightly ssshhhhy esses (but way less than before). Tried several records, and it's consistent accross them all.
My instinct is to give it a little more offset in the same direction. Is it ok to add more than i already have? Any danger of damaging the records or stylus by doing this too far?
Im happy the weight and anti-skate are good.
Any advice appreciated as always.
