Make sure your cartridge is aligned correctly with this precision alignment gauge.
Used on its own, I find it not too helpful as I had trouble ascertaining the proper overhang to start off. But used in conjunction with the Polaris Plus Alignment template I was able to get a better alignment and pretty decent sound quality. Not too simple as the alignments are based on eyesight estimation and the ear to confirm. If I had to choose I would opt for the Polaris, which by itself is also tricky.

Good quality, cheaep and easy to use. No instructions but if you've not used this type of gauge before there is plenty info online.

Nice firm construction so no flimsy paper to get folded or creased and clearly marked even without my specs! 4 stars as there are no instructions but it ain't rocket science to understand.

Got this as, though have used the Rega 'card' one since got turntable, dubious as to the cardboard hole for spindle wasn't most accurate in helping to line up the cart since it is such a fine mm perfect sort of task! So this Ortofon one is a sturdy 1/2mm thick plastic so mush more definite on spindle. As with all these entry level ones, need very good eyesight & getting eye line in right place to see & check cart is set correctly, but does the job without spending ££'s!
