Cartridge Alignment Optimization - Advanced Level

Optimization of turntable performance is 100% geometry and physics. There are three axes to be concerned with when optimizing: azimuth, rake and zenith error. While the ideal angle of one of these three parameters requires further research, two of them have alignment targets that are beyond debate. The question is: How to get them aligned perfectly? When a cartridge is not aligned perfectly, what happens and what will be missing from its performance? What are we giving up by aligning cartridges using test records or alignment by ear?
