No guidelines provided AFAIK, there's no mention of it in the (service) manual anyway.drobo1 wrote:I picked up a pretty nice condition SL-1800 Mk2. Speed, tonearm, buttons, lights all work well. The suspension adjustments seem a little tricky to me and it looks like it could use some tuning. I have the 7 mm long socket needed to turn the spring bolts. Are there any guidelines or recommendations to adjust the suspension?
First make sure the turntable plinth is on a level surface, then tune the suspension so that the platter is level too. It's not supposed to have a 'bounce' like other suspended decks like f.i. Thorens, but it shouldn't be too tight either. Having the arm base flush with the plinth's top surface is a good starting point.
