This gem is now equipped with the original tonearm and I believe it to be a BTD12S.
I have a spare tonearm, the Signet XK50 and I am wondering if this Signet arm would yield superior results.
Please let me know and thanks.

What material did you use for the plinth?

I have mounted a Shure V15 VMR cartridge with a new stylus and the cartridge is skipping.
I am using the specified VTF at 1.5 grams and the the deck is level.
The BTDS-12 has no anti-skate.
What can I do to end the skipping please?

Is the V15 V too light?
