Interesting isn't it. What's even more interesting is the different effect height has with different tonearms. I've tried it with three.
1. Roksan Nima with Ortofon Rondo Blue. Tracks at 2.3g at platter height but measures 3g at 1cm higher (ie. in a very tail down stance)
2. NAS Spacearm with Denon DL-160. Tracks at 1.6g at platter height but measures 2.8g at 1cm higher
3. OL Modded RB250 with NAS Tracer 1. Tracks at 1.5g at platter height ... and exactly the same, not a difference 1.5g again at 1cm higher.
