It is recommended to use an infinitely adjustable VTA adjuster with the Rega or OL1 tonearms - the advantages are:
1. Quick adjustment for tuning by ear - it takes a long time to change spacing washers and you can forget the sound differences.
2. Infinite adjustment - height adjustment can be heard to the nearest mm because height accuracy is important.
We offer 2 types of vta adjuster for the rega arm - the first called the "threaded vta adjuster" which will suit all decks. It is simply a thin threaded collar which threads onto the rega arm base. As the collar is rotated up and down it raises and lowers the height of the arm. You need a mounting hole of 24mm diameter or over (if your armboard is less than 11mm thick please let us know as we will need to add a spacing washer to your order) - this adjuster works well on the Linn LP12. Fortunately Rega decks and many others have this diameter already as the hole for the Rega arm is toleranced sufficiently oversize. The threaded vta adjuster initially raises the height of the rega arm by 2mm due to the top flange thickness - it can then raise the arm further by approx 10mm depending on the thickness of your armboard. This adjuster is included as standard with the Silver 250 & Silver Taper tonearms, so does not need to be purchased seperately.
