Pro-ject Xtension 9
I recently purchased my first serious turntable, a Pro-ject Xtension 9 which came with a factory fit Ortofon Quintet Black and an alignment protractor one would expect with a $2000 turntable.
After reading about the importance of a proper cartridge alignment and reading a lot of favorable reviews of the MintLP Best Tractor I ordered one from Yip.
The Best Tractor is not difficult to use and comes with clear instructions.
I first checked the factory setting and the overhang fell short by about 1mm. Then alligning the cantilever was a test of patience because of the minute adjustments that had to be made.
All in all it took me almost 2 hours to complete the task.
Also Yip was very helpful in providing advice on the questions I had along the way.
Unfortunately I can't provide a before and after comparison because the allignment was done on a new turntable and cartridge
but I am really pleased with the result.
Tight punchy bass, smooth detailed treble and a nicely layered soundstage that delivers a performance that is more engageing than my digital source. Just what I was looking for.
