Michell Engineering VTA Arm Adjuster
Our VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle) Arm Adjuster has been designed for the range of Rega arms (RB-250, RB-300 and RB-600) that use a threaded base. Once installed, the user can adjust the vertical tracking angle in minute increments without losing the rigid mounting so important to proper sound reproduction. The VTA Arm Adjuster is best used in conjunction with our Finger Locking Nut.NB: – The VTA Arm Adjuster is designed to be used with the new-style Rega arm board we have been making since the beginning of 1999. If used with other turntable brands, slight enlargement of the original Rega mounting hole will be necessary to accommodate the increased diameter of the VTA sleeve (approx 1 1/8”).
The VTA adjustor, at its minimum setting, raises the tone arm by 1.75mm, which is slightly less than the thinnest shim (2mm) that Rega manufactures and comes packed with three 10mm short standoffs.
