Had an issue with the X2's mechanicals so the seller shipped me an X6 and told me to keep the x2. I am surprised to see what robust mechanicals grace the x2. I have three options for rectifying it but wont get to it until Saturrday. It should be relatively easy even in a worst case scenario, just time consuming. Comparing to the repair manual for the x6, they seem to be identical up to the electrically actuated start/stop and repeat functions on the x6; looks to be the same geometries, parts, etc. The x2 DOES NOT have a way to adjust the tone arm height fwiw. I would love it if I were wrong here but seemingly all of the Sony TTs of this design architecture have thebadjusting hex screw in the same place and the X2 simply does not have it. Also, in the hole where withers should be a screw for adjusting the cueing drop speed, there is nada. I am going to horoscope that hole in Saturday before i get to executing the repair I put an AT VM540ML on the x2 And man, it is crazy good. I would give it an arbitrary 80% of clinical resolving of my DAC when A/Bing concurrently playing tracks in a modest run of about 2 dozen or so. The natural wave form is just that and I have sorely missed it. Overall I am pretty impressed and very pleased. Hopefully, total satisfaction comes Saturday morning.
