Thanks for the link. I have the Sonata as Grado suggests with the front of the cartridge 90 degrees to the record. This at the lowest point for the Rega arm. I am not using spacers and the arm cannot be lowered to try the tail down idea. I had used the 2MM spacer with the Red and did not remove it when I first installed the Sonata.

I listened to the Sonata and began to wonder if it could not sound better. It was then I removed the spacer and the upper frequencies opened up. I would like to hear a little tail down but unless I recess the plinth I cannot go any lower.
