Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I've only listened in its current configuration. Your suggestion is a good one, though I was hoping somebody would tell me the tilt didn't matter since I'm not anxious to fiddle with the azimuth on the unipivot again. I know there are tools to help with this but I've been too cheap to buy one so far.
" I'm not anxious to fiddle with the azimuth on the unipivot again"
I sympathise with your feelings on this knowing VPI unipivot arms myself (well, one of them). You could try one of Soundsmith's "Counter Intuitive" gizmos. It won't tell you what is the correct azimuth but will allow you to adjust it whilst retaining VTF or vice versa.
"If you prefer you can rotate the azimuth ring to set azimuth instead of rotating the counterweight."
I don't know if all the VPI tonearms have this but it makes azimuth adjustment easy.
Have Fun and Enjoy the Music
"Still Working the Problem"
Yes. My arm does not have the rotatable azimuth ring. I'll probably pick up the Soundsmith gizmo eventually but I guess I have to suffer for a while first. :)
