i have tried for a long time to get the answers to the following questions: 1) Has anyone else noticed that their MT10's settings deviated from the factory settings? When I set up my MT10, the tone arm height jig was WAY off, such that if I placed it as suggested, the arm was not close to parallel. I had to lower the tone arm significantly to get it parallel to the record surface (yes, using the factory-supplied MCC10 cartridge.) The setup sounds great, but I am bothered psych-acoustically by the deviation; 2) My MT-10.6 ( I assume the newest version) does NOT have a dot at the top of the tone arm between the n and t, (to which the manual refers as the center of the pivot) Older versions did. I have no idea why mine does not, and it makes using the plastic factory supplied alignment "jig" almost useless. I also have a more sophisticated Clearaudio metal jig with the hanging "nail" which I can't accurately place without that dot. Has anyone used any other alignment devices which might make setup more accurate? 3) The supplied cartridge is ALLEGEDLY a Clearaudio Talismann V2; however, the recommended tracking force for that cartridge is 2.8g, and the McIntosh literature states that the recommended tracking force for the MCC10 is 2.4g! Also, the output of the Talismann is .7mv and the MCC10 is .5mv!........ YES! these things are keeping me up at night!! . Comments???
