2MM REGA SPACER

 

Where a turntable has a Rega tonearm, there is no manual adjustment to the height of the tonearm at the pivot end. In some cases, this may preclude the setting of an accurate stylus rake angle for the cartridge. We can supply 2mm Tonearm Spacers in order to increase the height of the tonearm at the pivot end of the arm. They are placed between the underside of the tonearm pivot and the top of the plinth or tonearm board of the turntable.

In order to do this, first ensure the stylus tip and cantilever are protected during the ensuing process and that the tonearm lead is safely disconnected from the phono stage. Also, note the position/alignment of the tonearm to the platter and sides of the plinth so that, when repositioning the arm after the Tonearm Spacer has been added, the same alignment is retained. Start by unscrewing

 

 

the retaining nut, which holds the tonearm in place and is situated under the plinth or tonearm board, and then removing it and withdrawing the tonearm from the turntable. Pass the phono plugs through the 2mm Spacer and draw the Spacer up to a position directly underneath the tonearm pivot. Replace the tonearm, leaving the Spacer between the underside of the pivot and the top of the plinth or tonearm board and secure the retaining nut as it was before dismantling the tonearm from the turntable. Before tightening the nut, check that the tonearm is correctly aligned.
