The Soundsmith Corporation has created a $49.99 (introductory price) accessory that permits the user to make precise independent VTF and azimuth adjustments to VPI’s unipivot tonearms.
The “Counter Intuitive” system provides a sticker with a precision graphic scale (“counter”) printed on it, which is applied to the circumference of the VPI counterweight. A weighted “C-Clamp” then slides over the sticker and counterweight. By gently rotating the C-Clamp around the circumference of the counterweight (and referencing the edges of the weight to the printed graphic scale), fine adjustments to the cartridge’s azimuth. Sliding the C-Clamp forward and back permits the user to make fine adjustments to VTF, as well.
A simple, intuitive method for making very fine adjustments to VTF and azimuth and for getting the best performance from your VPI analog front-end!
Sound Smith will be demonstrating Counter-Intuitive at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest from October 15 through 17, 2010 in 4th floor Room 466 at the Marriott Tech Center in Denver, Colorado.
