May we introduce:
Being a vinyl addict you have spent a lot of money for your records. No doubt you want to listen to them at the best level possible. And no doubt you have set up your turntable with a Protractor so that overhang and offset is adjusted correctly. Do you think this is all you can do and everything is fine or is there any doubt?
Correct azimuth (HTA) is necessary to have a proper geometrical position of the stylus – and with it the coils of the generator – to track the grooves of your records. As a result you get a minimized crosstalk and it is set to be consistent on both channels. Still you think this can be done by putting the cartridge in an upright position? Unfortunately this is correct only in very few cases. Doing so you run into risk to have a misalignment resulting in higher stylus wear, worse sound reproduction and higher wear on your records!
Setting up turntable speed now is an easy task as you don’t need to use inaccurate strobe discs. Simply use Adjust+ and enjoy additional benefit from the built-in wow&flutter analyzer! Now you can test how good your turntable spins your discs….
Adjust+ is able to generate PDF documents directly of your results without Adobe Acrobat® installed. You can archive reports and share your results with other users. Adjust+ comes with its own test record pressed in 180 gramm HQ vinyl in germany.
Adjust+ can be run on your Windows®-computer making use of the onboard HD-audio interface. For best results we strongly recommend using an external USB 2.0 soundcard. On MacOS® you can run Adjust+ under VMware Fusion® using an external USB audio interface. You get a large bundle of functions that even extend the functionality of the legendary standalone TC3000 computer of Ortofon® at a fraction of the cost! Adjust+ Home retails for Euro 249.-. Adjust+ Pro will offer extended functionality for laboratory and quality control.
