What's included?

  • Unboxing of unit
  • Assembly of unit and it’s components
  • Set cartridge tracking length (to ensure the correct distance between pivot point and stylus contact is optimised)
  • Set linear tracking (to ensure the tracking arc is optimum and set for the best performance and longevity of both the stylus and record)
  • Adjusting azmuith (ensures that the stylus is aligning with the record for best performance and also to alleviate premature stylus wear and record groove wear)
  • Arm alignment
  • Fitting the drive belt (ensuring no finger grease or contaminants are transferred to the belt or pulley components)
  • Fitting/adjusting the anti skate system (so that the needle doesn’t skate across the surface or put undue force against the vinyl record groove)
  • Balancing the arm (particular care is needed to ensure the that the arm is precisely at the best position for optimum tracking)
  • Electronically setting the tracking force to best suit the cartridge (even though this can be guessed with a manual set up in most cases, an electronic set up will refine the standard settings by up to 25%)
  • Unit re-pack
  • Basic overview and instruction on how to achieve best usage and maintenance ideas
  • Insider tips to prolong the life of the motor, stylus and your records
