After wanting an WTA for several years I've been fortunate enough to pick up a mint condition GT upgraded with the newer alloy capped half golf ball arm. I finished set up last night and the improvement on my old pro-ject xpression is outstanding.
I've fitted it with my Ortofon 2m black which feeds into a Lounge LCR III phono and from there into a Decware Zen Triode amp driving 8" tangband widebanders in Mauhorn backloaded horn speakers. All in all, it's a very dynamic set up.
The one modification I've made is to replace the stock mat with a 5mm Achromat. This made a much more significant improvement than I was expecting.
Anyway, all that aside I've got a couple of questions:
1. My GT has the old flat feet - do the squashball feet make a big difference?
2. I've got a suspended wooden floor and drywall walls so isolation is an issue (especially footfalls) - does anyone have recommendations for isolation?
