Brand new, unused, and unopened. I am selling because I have two and only need one! This is a must-have accessories for the VPI uni-pivot tonearms. If you own one, you know how much of a PITA it is to finely adjust azimuth and tracking force, and that is why Soundsmith developed this tweak.
You install the grid sticker on your counterweight then slide the Counter Intuitive over it. Then using the arm's standard adjustments get your tracking force and weight as close as you can, lock the counterweight, then move the Counter Intuitive to fine your settings. No more trying to unlock the counterweight (it always moves), slightly adjust it (always moves too much), and lock the counterweight again (always moves again!). We all know that frustrating dance.
It will ship in a USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope.
Here is the description from Soundsmith's site:
"Now, for the first time ever, its delightfully easy to INDEPENDENTLY adjust your VPI tonearm to the exact tracking force and azimuth for optimal alignment, and to return to that setting easily and quickly. Peak performance done simply. Calibrated scales allow quick tweaking for accurate comparison of different settings.
Each "Intuitive" is carefully hand machined for a precision fit out of a thermally stable, highly damped polymer material, with installed brass weights. Designed to last a lifetime....
The Counter Intuitive sells for $49.95
Please contact us if you have any questions.
