RE: If it is really a problem...

I did already raise the VTA from previous setting during installation of the new cart. Not completely sure it is correct now but I raised the VTA to the point where the very bottom plane of the cart is parallel to the record surface.

Based on your idea I may try raising further because it definitely doesn't sound right at this point. I have been using Audacity tone control bass to -10 db and then it sounds more correct to my ears, which can't be right really.

I am listening with ELAC Reference DBR6.2 speakers powered by QUAD909 amp and tube preamp.

I expected exactly the opposite problem changing from a Grado Gold to the AT mc cart - if anything I expected stronger mids and highs.

I think the sound of the mids and highs is perfect now, very sweet, extended, not even the tiniest bit of harshness.

But the bass can't be right as it is...

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