Can't say about marking the arm as you are having work done. Why are you sending in the electronics? I thought the SG system had replaceable stylii? What happened?Looking for some advice. I have to send my SG cart and electronics to soundsmith for new styli to be built. Any suggestions for marking my phantom II tone arm wand so I can return the cart to the same exact position? I spent so much time aligning, I would love to be able to keep the alignment. Not sure if it's possible. Also since soundsmith is backed up with repairs, I will Probably loose my SG cart/electronics for 6 months sitting there waiting for my turn on the bench. I only have an entry level phono cart to use in the interim, and can't spend $$$ on a better cart right now due to the expense of rebuilding/updating the SG system.
Do you know if the preamp section got any equalization when the update occurred?The Straingauge has always been a racy sound, but could easily lack tonal "nourishment", and my digital could beat it for a filled out saturated sound.
Now this criticism is defunct, I'm not saying the Straingauge is quite at the level of Bill's Red Sparrow or DaVa, or Tom's Murakasina Sumile and Madake for pure fleshed out tonal heaven, but it runs them close.
So the higher models have equalization?I had heard a romor that he had added the EQ, but didn't confirm it. You do need to equalize them, at 500Hz boosting at 6dB/octave to 2000Hz where it goes back to flat.Ralph, I run the SG-200 which is cart and energizer unit only, I felt no need to go to the higher models utilising preamp.
I believe a little work was done on the energizer, but more maintenance than any update.
