VTA PRECISION CARTRIDGE ALIGNMENT GAUGE BLOCKS YOU GET 2 BLOCKS.
The Blocks are made from White Delrin and are Precision made.
Gauge Blocks are made for setting up Cartridges to show you what VTA degree your cartridge is at to the vinyl.
Your Cartridge Instructions tell you what degree your cartridge should be at to start out with.
It is VERY VERY HARD to see 1 degree or 2 degrees.
Each side of the Gauge Blocks are marked.
One side is MINUS a degree and the other side marked as PLUS a degree
The side you see is - degrees.
but flip them over and you have + degrees.
First find your Instructions and see what they tell you for setup.
1. Turntable Off.
Grab an old Album place it on TT.
You start out by folding a White Piece of paper in haft and putting it in the middle of the platter
on top of the vinyl.
Using Gauge Block that says 0° or what your cartridge instructions tell you and place it on the vinyl
about 1 inch away from the front of the cartridge, then GENTLY ,CAREFULLY
turn your platter backwards so the Gauge Block is very close to the front of the cartridge.
DO NOT TOUCH CARTRIDGE.
Now LOOK between the cartridge front face and the Gauge Block
You should have the same amount of light coming through.
-1° Degree there is more light showing at the bottom.
If more light is showing at the bottom then you have to lower the back of the arm.
Again please make sure you read you Instructions for the right VTA.
If you Place cartridge at 0°, you will notice that the sound stage is set back ( FLAT )
If you set your VTA with EXPRESSIMOAUDIO'S GAUGE BLOCKS at 1° Degree you will notice that the stage comes off the wall, it becomes BIGGER and Open. If you go too far it becomes unfocused, to much off the wall, things are too big.
VTA also can sound MUDDY or to BRIGHT and NO BASS
The only way to hear it, is to try it. That is why EXPRESSIMOAUDIO makes THE VTA GAUGE BLOCKS. So you as a TWEAKERS like EXPRESSIMOAUDIO can get every BIT of SOUND out of your System.
