Holmz Posted January 30 Share Posted January 30 (edited) I am looking at cartridge set up. The spindle to pivot distance is very close, like I cannot discern an error visually. And the overhang is straight forwards, but I am 90% convinced that spindle distance and overhang are bit OCD as the various alignments can have different overhang for the same spindle to pivot distance. I’ll set it the recommended, which I assume is with the pressure of VTF and correct rake so the suspension is where it should be… and any dynamic addition would be either accounted for, ignored (for overhang). VTF is easy with a scale When it comes to rake it appears like a USB microscope is worthwhile. So that leaves Azimuth, which is usually set with an 0-Scope and minimising cross-talk. Seems it is easy enough in theory. And the hardest one of all (IMO) which is zenith or cartridge yaw. Given that the body and cantilever may not be the same as the stylus is this just best set to be visually at zero, and then move it around in yaw to find the best zenith and for stylus ? After being OCD with VTF, Overhang and a protractor, to them have a multi degree zenith error, sort of seems like horse has bolted out of the stable… but the stable is freshly painted, warm and clean. Or do people send in their cart for the $500 optical measurement and the shims? Edited January 30 by Holmz Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
