Thanks for the input!
Dialing the cartridge at the moment. Takes a long time to get it right!
Take your time with the C1 - do not rush it. 30 years on, it is still unsurpassed in some aspects.
If I ever decide to DIY my own arm wands for the ET2 ( these have gone up in price - not exhorbitantely so, but still... - if you need say 10 pcs...) , one of the permanently mounted carts will be Empire MC 1-8 (- aka Carnegie One - aka Sony XL MC 9 ). Boy, do I miss it sometimes - but after you all will see to which degree
any of the cartridges I use gets adjusted/honed, it will be clear why MC 1-8 sits in the storage.
