ok, you say ‘I knew baerwald protractors, Loefgren protractors, what is that Stevenson it’s somewhere on the internet), Stevenson shed a new light on cartridge. THE REGA BAERWALD ARC PROTRACTOR download this protractor oops, impossible for me to set up my cartridge using your protractor: two possibilities. 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.

Thing Statistics Views. I swapped headshells on those two carts, with the M97xE going onto the Technics branded cart. Home is where my turntable is and everyone should have a two point protractor. I need to fix the alignment on my M97xE.
I did my best with the included protractor to align the cart properly, but the Technics doesn’t quite use a Baerwald alignment. You rotate protracto gauge and the swing the arm baerald it is.
The statement that Bserwald refered to makes no sense. Rotate cartridge to align cantilever with grid. 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. It was pre-mounted for a Technics alignment.
AntaresJan 29, They are the three yellow cells, I3, J3, and K3 in the calculator at the top of each page, and the three tan cells, A3, B3, and C3, which control the graph and the rest of the spreadsheet.
To post a Make, come back to this Thing and click Post a Make. The graph is a visual representation of the columns of numbers on the left, which are a function of three specific tonearm parameters, effective length, angular offset, and stylus overhang as displayed in the tan colored cells, A3, B3, and C3. But the goal is to adjust the overhang so that the zenith angle is correct at both null points when the alignent is centered over the null point.

Videos Enjoy the Music. Guy at the shop double-checked the wire connections, but said without the TT as well, he couldn’t check the alignment. For an explanation of the adjustment procedure, see the illustration and text below.
Remember to Post a Make! This will involve some averaging of the zenith angle between the two points, but the stylus should find exact center over both null points.
It is not the purpose of this page to study or attempt to explain the difference between different alignment theories. This will involve some averaging of the zenith angle between the two points, but the stylus should find exact center over both null points. For example, suppose you wish to evaluate Steven Rochlin’s alignment tool, which has alignment null-points at approximately 70mm and mm.
No matter how bad the overhang is you can do it. It’s good for the designer and the community that means you! As always, if you have any questions please feel free to e-mail them to me. Top view showing the two points of alignment. After a few minutes of nudging and checking with both a credit card and a razor blade, I’m ready to give it a shot on the TT.
We’re sure Entropy4U would love a Tip, but unfortunately they have not setup their accounts to receive them yet. I laid a straightedge down on the grid to help me gain a better perspective.
And if you have to average the the zenith between the two points, you don’t have the overhang set right. Stage has shifted a little more left than I’d like instead of more right like beforeand very weak and muffled. Log in or Sign up. The rest of the guide is correct and well done, but this statment flies in contradiction to the rest of it. This weighted curve places more emphasis on tracking error for inner grooves than for outer grooves, which is representative of the actual distortion caused by tracking error.
Inputs are effective length, innermost groove, and outermost groove.
Aligning cartridge using Baerwald protractor
Perhaps there will be inner grove tracking issues that will be better and I just need more time baerrwald identify them. When it was new I let the dealer set it up and had complete faith that it was done correct. If you want to see pictures of a Baerwald set-up using the Feickert protractor, try page 2 of this thread.
It is based upon the Baerwald calculations for minimum tracking baerwaldd when using a pivoted tonearm. The second cause might be an incorrect pivot-to-spindle mounting distance.
