The SMARTstylus by Acoustic Systems is the first template allowing for the setting of all geometric parameters of cartridge setup.
Cartridge set up is the biggest area for improvement. Precision set up is quite expensive and most Turntables are whoefully incorrect. Another essential tool from Acoustic Systems lets you get close and your ears will take it from there to get it perfect. --TA
Azimuth, SRA and VTA has never been quicker or easier to accomplish accurately.
The SMARTstylus is the perfect companion to the famed SMARTractor. What the SMARTstylus gains you is a simple tool allowing the more precision adjustment of the in cartridge set-up while the SMARTractor insures the first 2 dimensions are setup perfect.
This all-new SRA/VTA template received much praise and universal acclaim by all international reviewers seeing it at Munich High End show 2015.
- all loved the product and it’s total new and innovative approach.
SRA / VTA / Azimuth template
The SMARTstylus template comes in an engraved, handy hard case.
It features a 2x and 5x card-shaped hand loupe and a removable acrylic crossbar for 100% stability in use and operation.
The SMARTstylus is the very first template allowing for setting ALL geometric parameters of the cartridge - azimuth, SRA and VTA !! - fast and accurate within minutes.
Further it allows for accurate setting of horizontal arm wand.
The design and concept of the SMARTstylus is patent pending and under copyright protection.
In many ways the SMARTstylus matches and somehow “completes” the SMARTractor.
As the SMARTstylus takes care of the 3rd dimension in cartridge set-up - while the SMARTractor makes sure the first 2 dimensions are perfect.
We still recommend listening for final accuracy and Azimuth can be very tricky. Once accomplished the channel separation is remarkable.
