    Having the cartridge level is no guarantee of correct VTA. Vertical deflection of the cantilever varies according to tracking downforce and as this deflection (normally) follows a radial path (arc), obviously the angle of the diamond stylus will vary in relation to the record surface depending on downforce.

    Just thought I'd throw that in to further confuse things!

    a good starting point tho as long as deck is level, which most arent o the nth degree so worth setting the headshell at same angle as deck initially with a bubble then use your ears

    Don’t forget that VTA changes depending on thickness of record, so if you happen to suffer from OCD good luck.

    Sorry Geoff, the platter mat will only make a difference if you keep changing it.

    How on earth am I supposed to raise/lower my tonearm at 0.025 of a mm? I can barely adjust it by a mm or 2, it is a Jelco 750D, there is no way to use a gauge as you say. At the moment it is finally sounding quite nice as I finally got the tonearm cable I needed (earth wire at both ends!) from Yannis Tome who added one free for me, so I am now able to raise it to the right level.
