From the true masters of Analogue engineering.This has to be the best level we have used. Suitable to setup for most turntables with a standard spindle. This 2 part level is also supplied with an optional 45 rpm adaptor and spindle hole for accurate levelling. The total weight is 180 grams so it will not alter the suspension on suspended sub-chassis designs.This is a critical first stage in setting up any turntable, whether it’s a budget deck or high end.
A turntable which is not level will never give its best performance. Even having the platter slightly off level could cause slight speed variations, which will dramatically affect the wow and flutter causing instruments and notes to waver and smear imaging.Your cartridge will not run centrally in the groove producing channel imbalance, loss of detail and potentially damage your records together with your stylus. To ensure the deck is level you need to use a bubble level, however, don’t go to your tool shed and use the level your builder left behind after his last job. DIY style levels are too heavy and their weight will throw off the alignment of your turntable. Using the AVID will ensure that your deck is not only perfectly horizontal, but that the suspension rebounds evenly in both horizontal and vertical planes.
Best place to level the turntable is over the spindle. This fits over the spindle and also weighs 180g to replicate the weight of an album.There’s also a 45rpm adaptor.Excellently machined and finished, highly recommended and is useful elsewhere too.

soddisfatto x tempo di consegna, imballaggio ...serieta' assoluta...prodotto validissimo...lo consiglio caldamente.
First very fast sending and very well packed. So we come to the Avid himself, this tool exist out two peaces one is the leveler the other the adaptor. They fit perfectly on a in my case Acoustic Solid record player the hole of the adaptor is quite deep 0.641 inch or 16.28 mm, the leveler is perfect in mesurement of the player. I would recommend this tool to everyone with a record player.
Make sure to buy one of these with your AVID turntable. Makes setup precise and acts as a 7 inch single adapter. Stunning looks and superb finish on top of that.
A high quality piece of precision tuning kit BUT beware: if you have a turntable with a high spindle (e.g. for a screw on clamp), this might not fit.
best level I had, v nice 45 adaptor
I've tried a couple of other levels & not been completely happy. This one has a neat design, is very well made and above all it's accurate. Worth every penny.
good easy to use perfect for my turntable
Great Product, Set up my Michell Gyrodec SE using it. Very good quality and service.Thanks
