    Default Genius marketing

    Having discovered the delights of upgrading my tonearm, I thought I should at least try and get the cartridge aligned properly.
    Got this of eBay for about £3.
    For the price of a pint made me laugh

    So do I, although I did try to buy an identical device that didn't have the word 'BUM' written on it. Regardless of appellation, it does the job.
