Good advice, thanks. I'm still fine tuning everything and probably will be for a while. It seems like the recommended tracking force/anti-skid for my cartridge are rough guidelines at best. I've had much better luck going by my ears.
Since you bought your rig already, please make sure you take the time to balance the TT, arm, and cart, aligning the cartridge length as it sits on your tonearm and the angle at which the stylus rides in the groove (VTA). The weight of your cartridge affects your tonearm in the way that it rides in the groove, and you need to adjust, listen, adjust, listen, and repeat a few times until you get the most balanced sound quality over the widest range of the album (from outside to inside grooves).
