RE: Less treble and more bass with a new jico stylus

In my system the V15Vx goes deeper than most other cartridges, with both the original and SAS styli. The bass I hear, however, is clean and does not seem excessively full. For reference, I have an NHT 1259 subwoofer that goes all the way down. I formerly played the double bass.

I sometimes hear distracting low frequency artifacts, such as a foot tapping near a mic stand, and once what I think was the rumble of the R Train near Carnegie Hall. A few LPs seem to have excessive very low frequency boost but most seem reasonably balanced to me.

If the bass is too full you may have a loading issue, but I would try a few things first that are more easily dealt with.

I would check the VTA and VTF. I would also try moving your speakers. If you have located them based on other cartridges, a little relocation may bring them in balance with the V15Vx/SAS.
