Product Description

Cartridge Man digital stylus forge gauge allows you to accurately set phono cartridge downforce, the accuracy of which is crucial in getting the best sound from your entire turntable set-up. Setting up a cartridge incorrectly can result in anything from degraded sonic performance, to mis-tracking and even damage to the record and stylus. Correctly setting setting stylus force is vital to musical performance: too heavy and it becomes laboured in its midband and boomey in the bass, too light and it sharpens the music.

Many stylus force gauges are only accurate to 0.1g, can be fiddly to set-up and offer a non-optimum measurement height - often meaning that you have to remove the platter to check the weight, which can result in a non-optimum measurement. The Cartridge Man's Digital Stylus Force Gauge now offers a more accurate solution, featuring an enhanced measurement range (down to 0.05g), which is easy-to-use and competitively priced. A lifetime solution that will allow you to always experience the full potential of your phono cartridge.

Press Reviews

  • The importance of setting up a turntable correctly is only appreciated by those why have completed this task. Until then you just do not know what you are missing'

    Used in conjunction with the test record, you have all the tools needed to set up a turntable system to perfection. All professionals/shops should own these. If someone comes to set up a turntable and doesn't have one ask why not - its like a doctor without a stethoscope (TNT-Audio online)

  • Now I'd go further and say that for anyone who takes the job seriously, then its essential equipment. This thing is a DIY-ers delight. Expensive? Yes, but then the best normally is (Hi-Fi+ magazine)
