Denon DP-57M arm height adjustment

Postby kffern » 05 Jan 2018 07:36

Hi,
I can't set the arm height correctly for any of my cartridges with this arm so have to use a 1mm platter mat to get decent performance. The manual says it only has 5mm adjustment which is ridiculously small. I would like to use a thicker platter mat as the platter is pretty lightweight on this model. With an AT150MLx I have it maxed out and with a 1mm platter it looks and sounds about right but I would like a bit of adjustment and experiment with different platter mats.
Has anyone worked around this? I thought of lifting the arm and making a shaped spacer to raise the arm base around 3 to 4mm.
Thanks,
kffern
