The tonearm board can be twice as thick as you have now without sacrificing performance. In fact, my tonearm board is twice the height of yours.

I called VPI, and they have a spacer that will go between the VTA tower assembly and my existing plates to give it enough lift to be able to crank the VTA tower back down to a reasonable level.

Thanks everyone! (Especially the folks at VPI!)

Things like this (and my forthcoming 10" Fatboy) are why I am a loyal VPI customer.

To bring this story to its logical conclusion, the riser was received from VPI and installed and everything is good and locked off now.

Huge thanks to Brf and the crew at VPI!
