  1. I have found something that is not described in such details. The question what azimuth angle adjustments does for the sound and what to listening after. I have a rather fine pickup a ortofon 2M black shibata diamond (that can make it more sensitive). DEPENDING on what record you use. Azimuth angle are from almost none affected to other records that are more effected/sensitive. That is one reason why it is such a hard way to get this right! I have everything adjusted to perfection except one angle. The azimuth.. I thought I needed expensive instruments to adjust it.. I have put azimuth to parallel and in level with the record. Yesterday night I sat down to listening to a new bought record. And noticed the artist where more to the right than in the center of the image. And that is something I have experienced with some of my records.. But ok what do I have to loose? It is just to rotate the headshell some degrees back and forth and listen. And now it happens things! Of course I rotated the headshell and got the azimuth worse and the artist event even further out of center.. Ok now back to 0 degrees and past it to approximately 2 degrees of. And now the artist got back to the center of the image as it should be! My question where ok now it is adjusted for two of my more sensitive records. And they are now great! But the question is what has happened with my other records that the artist where already in the center of the image, after my adjustments? I put my well known Adele 25 and she was still in the center of the image! So different records are more or less sensitive to azimuth regarding the center image. So witch two recordings do I experience that it is easier to adjust the azimuth by ear? James Blunt ‎– The Afterlove Label: Atlantic ‎– 0190295850784 Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Gatefold Country: Europe Released: 24 Mar 2017 Genre: Pop James Blunt is a new production and the artist shall be in the center of the image. This recording is recorded with a very broad listening stage. That make it easier to hear and get him in the center of the image. One of the tracks that is good to listening after, that James are in the center is "Make me better".

Here listen on B side on track "soprano" Daisy's beautiful voice shall also be in center of the sound stage. And remember that the shibata shaped diamond CAN make it more sensitive to azimuth adjustments. Other shapes (elliptical, cylinder and so on) may be is not so sensitive.
