RE: XLM Mkii + Rega

...seems like there might be a mismatch, what with the ADC being possibly the highest compliance cart ever made. It was designed for ultralight arms like the Infinity "Black Widow" or the Grace G707 (a popular pairing back in the day). The Rega arm is medium mass at least, and well suited to many
MC's. I know you're hearing what you're hearing and it sounds great ...just sayin. A table at this high of a performance level would get a lot out of a nice Dynavector 20, or find a vintage Benz MC20 (I think that was literally designed around the Rega arm- they show up on auction websites every so often, cheap enough to afford a retip if needed). I owned the DV 20 and it sounded great after a long break-in. I heard the budget-Benz and it sounded beautiful but perhaps a little thin in comparison, but I doubt it was broken in.
