Yesterday afternoon, in pretty lousy driving conditions, I took the Aro for another trip up the Fosse Way to Cymbiosis to have the Kandid installed. It seemed pointless taking my turntable back as well just to have the height of the arm pillar adjusted to suit the new (taller) cartridge, since it had been set up just a week previously when the Karousel was installed. Peter gave me an extended lesson in setting the pillar height, as well as other general Aro set-up tips, so I could do it myself at home.

Below I show a couple of photos taken by Peter yesterday of the Kandid installation and how he managed to fit the four flying leads from the cartridge, together with the arm leads and connector pins in the small space between the rear of the cartridge and the front end of the arm tube. Neat job!

The Kandid is rather good, isn’t it?!

Great pictures and good to know the Kandid is rather good. I am interested to see what adjective(s) will most suit my forthcoming Karousel/Keel change from current Rubikon/Cirkus/Tq.... ‘slightly better’ ‘not bad’ ‘disappointing’ 🤔

Haven’t had chance to play it today, sadly. But I wouldn’t want to wear it out too quickly!
