Adjusting The Tonearm Height On My Technics SL1400

Postby Erodr133 » 14 Sep 2017 06:25

Tonight I decided to make sure my turntable was at peak performance, so I was doing some maintenance on my turntable. I've run into a bit of snag though. I can't seem to adjust my tonearm height to dial in my VTA on the SL-1400. The manual doesn't state anyway to raise or lower the height of the tonearm whatsoever. Anybody have any ideas what I should do? Thanks!

The SL-1400 doesn't have any provisions for tonearm height.
Using a suitable cartridge, and/or shims, is the only reasonable solution.

No adjustment for VTA on the SL-1400. Either change cartridge to one with different height or use shims.
