Skating adjustment

For me with a Benz Ace SL and 2.0 gm VTF, a skating adjustment set on 1 works well. Skating adjustments have a large effect on the sound stage of this excellent tonearm.

Damping Oil Addition

I would suggest starting with no damping oil. Listen, then add a very small amount at a time. Too much and the sound stage closes in.

Mass effective

I asked the news of the effective mass Jelco arm SA 750-D, the answer:

Dear Bisogno,

Thank you for your inquiry for SA-750D tonearm.
Effective mass is 20gr.
Damping oil is 500cps silicone oil.

Best regards.
