RE: new AT OC9ZEN mc has excessive bass

Does the signal have way way too much bass when you actually listen to it through your speakers?
Yes that is what gives me the opinion of too much bass

I am assuming we are looking at the output from your linestage into the Korg. Correct?
The screen shot is that of a .wav file imported into audacity, then generating spectral plot, after digitizing the LP using the Korg.

You mentioned another cartridge for comparison, have you done a similar frequency sweep with that cartridge, and what does it look like?
I didn't digitize this LP using the previous cart. However I do have some other LPs digitized using the previous cart, and I will now digitize them using the new cart, and do a listening comparison.

Man what a project this archiving has turned out to be! Between the ultrasonic cleaner, the new cartridge, the new phono preamp, various accessories, cables, etc. I am into it for close to a grand!

. I judge any sound system by how tiring it is to listen to.
