Default SRA & VTA set up

If it interests anyone there is a nice write up in the June issue of stereophile page 29 titled SRA, VTA & my sonic lab eminet EX cartridge......As you read on thru the write up you'll see he uses the Dino-Lite's USB microscope and software to get the 92 degrees needed........I ordered the Dino-Lite USB AM-311S $199 should be fun.....below is also some good reading

It's hard to believe that in nearly 8 years, this thread has not received a single response.

I would assume that in the intervening years since MF first wrote about using a usb microscope that there are newer and better versions (especially resolution wise) on the market. I've been looking around a bit, but haven't settled on any one particular model yet.

Anybody else out there using this device? I'd imagine it would also be an invaluable tool to measure stylus wear as well.

Just sayin'

Here's a search of the parent forum on the word "microscope". I don't know if the forum software will preserve it across sessions; but you get the idea.

https://www.audioaficionado.org/sear...archid=4106675

I use a Dino-Lite AM4115ZT



Here is a recent picture is of my Benz-Micro LP S at 200X

Formula: ((180-TA0) + TA1) / 2 = SRA

Posting a link to search results doesn’t work, but did you try doing the search yourself?

Of course not. Why would I?

I used the search feature to find the lonely thread that I resurrected. I'm satisfied.

I bought the Smart-tractor and the Magick alignment software. USB microscope Dyno light I think. The acoustical systems VTA tool. When my new TT comes in two weeks I will set up the new Lyra Etna cartridge. I will post pictures of the process I will be able to give opinions of these tools then.

That would be a very worthwhile project to take photos of as you make your way through the setup.

Nah. Think I’ll leave Ivan & Co. alone since I’m relatively new here.
