Short tips which will help you easirer to set up turntables, tonearms and cartridges.

1.Cartridges & tonearm  set up mystiques revealed:

Importance of overhang is absolutely none. This is a distance   how much is diamond tip over the centre of the record  from direction of the  horizontal bearing of the tonearm. It is only a starting point of  setting up tonearm & cartridge tangential geometry for pivoted  tonearms. Optimal overhang does not mean that cartridge is properly set up in tonearm.  Do not be mislead with  precise figures below 0.50 mm. You can not see or adjust that precision anyway.

But if you use two zero point protractor, when both points are optimised that also automatically means that all parameters ( optimal tangential geometry with minimal tracking error distortion) is optimal,  regardless if you start  with not correct  tonearm distance position or  how tilted is cartridge body in the headshell. You simply align  cantilever and diamond tip  on two zero point protractor. How to simply achieve that- visit our web site Kuzma Ltd for details. This will insure you minimal mistake in tracking.

If you use  more sophisticated protractors with single point  alignment on the tonearm distance from  pivot to spindle- be aware that a small mistake in distance set up will create bigger error and you will not be aware of it and you can only test it with two zero point protractors with correct geometry ( Baerwald, Lofgren...)
