Setup Tips!

Postby vego99 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 8:39 pm

So after 8 years of wanting a VPI Turntable, I've finally took the plunge and purchased a table that i had only dreamed about having.

Ive got to assume that there is a learning curve when it comes to setting up a uni-pivot arm so I'm looking for some tips and tricks on setting this thing up.

Thanks for all your help.

I'd suggest starting with the videos on the VPI site. Some good one's there.

Also, not sure about your budget, but there are some suggested tools/gadgets that'll help.

Dr. Feickerts Universal Protractor is a suggested first on the list. And if the budget allows, his Adjust + software. In lieu of that, look up Millenium Block. Several substitutes on eBay that'll work.

Oh, and read. Read here, read over at Audio Nirvana. IMHO, stay away from Vinyl Engine. Lotsa really bad info there.

And welcome. And enjoy!

Thank's Johnny! I've been painfully watching the FexEx tracking in hopes the estimated delivery date gets changed to a day earlier. Right now we are still tracking for Thursday. As of this morning we are in Kansas!
