The Cartridge Man Digital Stylus Force Gauge

Users of vinyl are well aware of the importance of being able to accurately set their cartridge tracking down-force.

Failure to do this can result in anything from degraded sonic performance, through to mis-tracking and even damage to the record and stylus.

The only readily available method of setting the down-force has been the Shure Force Balance - fine value for money, but suffering from only 0.1g resolution, somewhat fiddly set-up and a slightly non-optimum measurement height.

The Cartridge Man has now introduced a highly accurate, enhanced measurement range, easy-to-use and competitively priced all-electronic Digital Force Gauge. The unit will prove itself indispensible when requiring an absolute and consistent tracking force reference.

I've tried so many of these things that provide inconsistent results. What a joy to find that this one DOES give consistent results. Does it cost more? Yes, it does. But for some things in life it's still true that "You get what you pay for."
