Getting the most out of any turntable requires an accurate vertical tracking force setting-and yes, kids, you can easily hear changes as slight as a tenth of a gram. it is small, has a backlit display, is incredibly easy to use.
Accurate and simple to use – that’s the essence of a great stylus force gauge, and that’s what you get with this. We all know, or certainly we all should know, that dialling in your correct tracking force is absolutely essential for optimal record playback.
If you miss on the heavy side, your sound becomes thick and sluggish. Miss on the light side, and your cartridge is more likely to mis-track and the sound will be light and could damage your valuable records
So, stop messing with those mechanical stylus balances that aren’t even accurate. This is one case where digital makes more sense when it comes to fine-tuning your analogue.
