    That is something I was expecting too. I did inquire about this but never got a response from Chris Feickert about it.

    On AM, I get different readings on 33 versus 45 (better) as well. Probably due to the software algorithms. Perhaps it will be addressed in version 2 (when it cones out).

    VPI Tonearm VTA Adjustment

    Good info. Thanks. One other thing to note is that the VTA tower as some slop in the dial. So you need to account for this when turning in or turning out. Also, when raising the arm, there is no problem. But when lower the arm, I have to place some weight (finger will do) on the top of the...

    And just for comparison, here is the same Dyna XX2.2 on the Scout 2 when it was dialied in. I wouldnt worry too much about actual numbers.

    Agreed. A+ and AM are great tools. Even helped "see" and remedy the vibration/hum from the 300 rpm motor pods. The 600 rpm motor pod is actually quieter. Go figure.

    In a prior setup (VPI Scout 2 with Dyna XX2.2) yes, AM was very helpful to adjust for improved sound. I am installing the Dyna on my VPI Prime and getting there.

    On AM, the channel difference seems greater than on A+, all the time. Perhaps due to differences in software algorithms. These get you close but still need to cinfirm by ear.

    My A+ and AM are not that much different. The A+ measurements and graph seem to be inconclusive as to phase so I set Azimuth to match levels as close as possible and lowest mono differential (eg -2 in the chart below)

    Back to Jeff Rowland, now listening to Criterion and 825 :-)

    Actually, I did ask Jeff a while back. The answer was, no. I could go to the Corus with PSU but then I would lose the mono toggle on the Synergy 2i, which I really like for the few mono LPs I have.

    Thanks for the photo. Ive been looking for a bps2 for my synergy 2i. Kinda like trying to find hen's teeth. I assume it makes a noticeable difference (as I have heard others state with the Corus/PSU).

    Nice JRDG history there. I didn't know the Syngery 2i could work wit the BPS6 (I thought it only worked with the BPS2). Is there any difference between them?

    Original VPI Scout - The audiophiles best kept secret?

    Agreed. And adding the Classic platter was the biggest improvement for the Scout IMHO.
