I added the Pro-Ject Phono Box S, which did the trick. Wasn't aware that the stylus being overly sensitive to the hum was part of the problem. Would rather buy a new cart than stick with that thing,...

I just switched out the stock cables with some thick, short, annoyingly stiff Monoprice cables. It definitely helped minimize it further, to a mere whisper. It's not 100% gone, but if I weren't...

I just tried the fix, since I found my own screws. Some experimentation with the tightness necessary to get optimal results.
At this point, I've got it down to something pretty manageable - only...

gajCA- thanks for taking the time to share this fix with us. I seem to have misplaced my Motor Mount screws (removing them did help with the hum but didn't eliminate it). I'd like to try your fix but...

So when I was tweaking the numbers, I messed it up too bad and decided to start from scratch. But I'm having trouble getting it close to as good as it was before. I took pictures of the numbers...

You know, they really should instruct you to get as many of the above reference-white bars to show, if it has that much of an effect on gamma. But nobody does. I really appreciate it.

Heyo! Now that's more like it! dE is ruined 20% and below but that's fixable (I hope). Only thing left is to possibly deal with colors somehow. Thanks for the tip!

No, I just double checked - everything up to 235 is showing. I can decrease contrast so that bars beyond reference white won't clip, and see what happens. Moving it down to 43 ensures that everything...

I'm using dE94 to measure, with fields off the AVS709 BD-R. The fluctuations are persistent and maddening. I may need to take the very, very low end into account when fiddling with RGB Gain/Offset...
