Baerwald, Stevenson, and others came along later, and each published alignment geometry equations. I did my best with the included protractor to align the cart properly, but the Technics doesn’t quite use a Baerwald alignment. I wound up with.

Other types of measuring devices exist but the reader will need to discover these. As an additional precaution, I recommend you archive a copy of the spreadsheet and always use a different working copy, just in case something goes wrong and you want to return to the original. Yes, my password is: AntaresJan 29, DarkAuditFeb 1, I recommend that this very important mounting distance, pivot-to-spindle, is checked and compared to the tonearm manufactures specification.

In the original, generic, prtractor, I noticed the right channel had gone nearly nonexistent. The red wire for the right channel on that headshell wasn’t looking all that well.

The method is different. If you have to average the zenith between the two points, you don’t have the overhang correct.


I wound up with the soundstage moved significantly to the right. It takes time and patience to get it just right, but the results are worth it!

You could ask “Solver” to find new innermost and outermost groove radii that would yield Steven’s alignment null-points, and you would also get a graphical protraxtor of Steven’s tracking error and distortion curves.

The above image shows the two null points in relation to each other. There is no possible adjustment, right or wrong that would prevent you from achieving this. It is not the purpose of this page to study or attempt to explain the difference between different alignment theories.

The rest of the guide is correct and well done, but this statment flies in contradiction to the rest of it. Using the VPI jig I only have to deal with the one alignment grid much easier than the 2 point protractors. I have bqerwald crank the volume much higher than normal to get the usual listening level, and bbaerwald then it’s muddy.

This is the process that I’ve worked out and it works for me!

I first became aware of the seemingly precise alignment options last year prior to my VPI TT purchase. That is our overhang adjustment using a two point protractor.

Danny HollandJan 29, Can you see the slight mis-alignment to the zenith adjustment? W ell, there’s no place like home. The heads of the screws that came with that cart don’t baerwakd properly in a Technics branded headshell, so I had to reverse them. The second cause might be an incorrect pivot-to-spindle mounting distance.

Okay, so how does the spreadsheet work? I barwald a paper Baerwald protractor and played a record all the way through and didn’t notice any distortion at all.

Typically this can happen when pivot-to-spindle distances are made adjustable at the arm gaerwald, or if a different tonearm has been incorrectly installed to the turntable.

When correctly set, the stylus will have a near perfect groove tangency at two points on the record, minimizing tracking error between and beyond the null points. It was pre-mounted for a Technics alignment.
