Well this arrived with a stylus guard, which I promptly took off as just one more thing to vibrate, standard 55E didn't have one. The only one I have seen is this one from Jico, which makes the whole deal even more of a bargain.

N55E/IMPROVED[e007414]
$56.00
Cartridge No. : M55E/IMPROVED
Manufacturer : SHURE

I see you had the same http://theartofsound.net/forum/showthre ... 55E-Stylus

Mine was sat on a cabinet but I purchased a bamboo chopping board and placed sorbothane feet between that and the cabinet. I then put 4 oak cones at each corner of the plinth and placed it on the chopping board. :grin:

They say that as it is suspended ,it is less temperamental about what it is placed upon.

Empirically ,for me that is a load of shit. One reason why I decided the best thing was to part company with the springs
Even a stroke didn't result in me liking AOS

I will have to dye my fluffy bunnies pink then. Trouble is they don't sit still for very long which might be a problem :grin:

Remove the springs :shock: :shock: Not sure I would want to do that, at least until I get to know it better :grin:
Alfi supplied me with some "insole" spring replacements for my fruitbox. Have not fitted them yet. Maybe he could make some for the Pink :?: :?:

It is a shame that this PT1 has the DC motor in the 1 o'clock position as they are supposedly better at 7 oclock. Arthur can funk these up to Anniversary beating specs (allegedly) with vector drive, moving the motor etc etc but I expect it will be a substantial cost. I think mine will be staying stock - except for the power supply which is designed and built by Les at Avondale himself. I find leaving things as stock very hard to do as I cant help fiddling about but with this I will have to resist temptation :cry:
