Turntable Setup

In this section you'll find turntable user manuals, service manuals, brochures and technical documents.

For setting up your turntable we have a selection of easy to use tonearm/cartridge alignment protractors. There are also printable strobe discs (50 or 60Hz) and plans for a DIY turntable strobe. These files are supplied free of charge to assist individuals in the operation and repair of their record playing equipment. Many thanks to all the forum members who have contributed to this archive and the manufacturers who have allowed copies of their manuals to be reproduced here.
