maybe not the best set up procedure

Ross, you state "very sensitive to setup. Thankfully the square sides make azimuth easy to set".

I hope you realize that relying on the cartridge body is not a reliable means to set azimuth. From what I've read very few cartridges have precisely aligned cantilevers and styli so one can't assume they are true to their cartridge body. You really need to work with the stylus/cantilever to set up overhang and offset and find a measurement device for azimuth. The Fozgometer worked well for me and many other vinyl fans. An even more precise means could be an oscilloscope, but not many of us have access to one.

All that aside, glad you are enjoying your SS 103. I may have mine done too.
