Ortofon Hi-Fi Alignment CardCartridge Alignment Protractor
Making sure your cartridge is properly aligned can make a tremendous difference to how your records sound.
A well-aligned cartridge sits right in the centre of the groove, so that the sensitive stylus can pick up the movement of the grooves on both sides. Get that right, and your music will sound as full and as natural as the maker intended.
