Welcome Licorice Pizza (LP) lovers! Setup guides and Vinyl FAQ.


So I nuded it this afternoon and I am now giving it a spin. I also added a drop counterweight a few days back, which seemed to improve things a bit. Finally, I've settled on 200 ohms as the best setting, as less loading seems to harden up the midrange and more loading rolls off the highs.

It hasn't change the overall sound character, with the exception of the highs seem more tonally correct. Not as spot on as my M.09, but better than it was stock. I do like it's effortless presentation, full bass, and now, high end. The minuses are the slight veil, compared to my M.09, and what seems to be, a bit of compression, especially in the upper mids.

At this time, I feel the mod has improved the overall sonic picture and makes the cartridge better suited towards my taste but, alas, it is not the equivalent of my M.09, which I was kind of hoping for. Maybe when I wear out the diamond and have SS retip it, it will bring it closer to what I hope.
