Technics SL-1200GR w/Nagaoka MP-110H Set-up tips..

Postby dedekam » 13 Feb 2018 19:52

Hello everyone. just bought a Technics SL-1200GR w/Nagaoka MP-110H cartridge. i have set it up, but i dont feel 100% its correct/as good as it can be..any tips or videos that come recommended? adjustments for dummies type..

the arm LOOKS to me like its balanced/floating - and the antiskating and balanceweight are both around the 1.8 point. but after listening to a few records i feel like its some sign og slight distortion at times..this can also by my imagination of course

any tips are welcomed :)

my previous deck was a Rega Planar 3 (latest version)

What method you used? For my SL1210 MK2 I usually got better sonic result with Baerwald alignment. Try download Baerwald from this site https://www.vinylengine.com/cartridge-a ... tors.shtml and check if result is better. In my experience I had to use standard technics alignment then Stevenson but sound was not as good lets sat 3 dimensional like with Baerwald method.

The Rega was probably better sounding :mrgreen: . I had the GR for a while but it missed dynamics with all the carts (MP 110/GR 1006/AT VM 540 ML) i used. The best sonic result i had with the Technics overhang gauge or Stevenson alignment. But sadly the GR didn't satisfied me as much as i wanted :(

Hmmm It´s interesting. I have three cartridges AT440Mlb, AT150SA and MP-110 and can not complain for not enough dynamics... But I have model 1210MK2 from 2005 year.

Set it up with Baerwald Arc Protractor downloadable from this site. Make sure the printout is 100% scale.

My GR witha Denon 103R sounds phenomenal
