  • Excellent scale for turntable tone arms

    posted by Guido10 on 01/05/2011

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Excellent scale for adjusting stylus force on tone arms from turntables.
    -Very cheap compared to regular shop models.
    -Very accurate
    -very small
    -weighing plateau is very thin
    -non magnetic weighing plateau, no mangetic materials under weighing plateau, so magnets in the phono cartridge can't mess up measurement

    Cons:

    -supplied batteries are crap
    -no calibration weight included. Order the 5g calibration weight SKU.20010
    -tare function is sensitive

    Bottomline:

    This is a great scale for adjusting and measuring stylus force on your turntable at a fraction of the price normal Hifi dealers charge. The non magnetic plateau on the scale and non magnetic materials underneath the plateau means you can use it with MC cartridges wich have very strong magnetic field. Get a pair of extra batteries and the 5gram calibration weight (SKU.20010) and you're ready to go.
    If you don't want a scale with button cells get the sku.29836 It has AAA and will do the job also.
