Manufacturer: Acoustical Systems
This all-new SRA/VTA template received much praise and universal acclaim by all international reviewers seeing it at Munich High End show 2015.- all loved the product and it’s total new and innovative approach.
The brand new SMARTstylus template comes in an engraved, handy hard case.It features a 2x and 5x card-shaped hand loupe and a removable acrylic crossbar for 100% stability in use and operation.
The SMARTstylus is the very first template allowing for setting ALL geometric parameters of the cartridge - azimuth, SRA and VTA !! - fast and accurate within minutes.Further it allows for accurate setting of horizontal arm wand.
The design and concept of the SMARTstylus is patent pending and under copyright protection.
In many ways the SMARTstylus matches and somehow “completes” the SMARTractor.
As the SMARTstylus takes care of the 3rd dimension in cartridge set-up - while the SMARTractor makes sure the first 2 dimensions are perfect.
If you like to get maximum performance out of turntable get this. Easy to use.

I think it's too expensive, but helps with setup.

This device is well made and easy to use with a handy magnifier. However the finger lift found on my and most arms means that the otherwise excellent SMARTstylus is centimetres away from the stylus. I couldn't focus the supplied loupe on the stylus and cantilever which really limits the accuracy. IMO it needs a cutout for the finger lift to fit through or to be redesigned so the arm level lines and cross piece are on the left side.
