Ok, PICS HERE! Sorry bout that, been busy lately. First, kurt, thanks for the advice. Tracking is one thing i haven't messed with yet, was sort of hoping it would stay that way, but oh well.
Also, i accidentally won TWO phono preamps on ebay, the NADpp2i and Music Fideltity V90, something like that, bout 160 retail or so. NAD was a joke, right back in box. Music Fidelity awesome, better than the Pioneer receiver? A LITTLE bit maybe, but nothing significant. BUT, was going to do that anyways because my newer receiver i can hook more stuff into like AUX, send all out to 4 speakers and sub, etc. etc. you get it. ANYWAYS, where i was going with that, is that did improve that high "s" squeal sound a bit. Did it go away? No, but i did help.
TtTonight i finally got cleaning stuff so records and stylus will get cleaned, albeit i don't have vac up and going yet. So we will see where that takes us.
One thing i was going to mention, until i get a better setup for furniture, my record players sits basically right new to one of the bookshelf speakers. Could that have anything to do with it maybe?
So, we are all caught up. We are progressing tho and i love it. This cartridge actually sounds pretty dang good i must say, if i could get rid of that hiss. OR, maybe i just don't what good sounds like yet?
Here are pics, like i said, one part looks about 30 years old.
