VTF scale tale

Post by mbskeam » Sat Apr 14, 2018 2:01 pm

So, when setting up my new cart I noticed that when I brought it close to my scale it would show this.
Image

it was not touching yet, as I got closer it would keep going up till touch.
Image

the scale is magnet, which I did not know, went back and checked the DV cart and it did the same thing, but about 1/4 of the VDH cart.
(this scale came with my WTL turntable, who would've thought they would send a POS.)

picked up a Audio additives scale.

(it did not move till needle was resting on pad)
might explane a few things, as to why in the past It sounded better with a heavier VTF than what was shown.....

First thing I thought was magnet? Then read the rest of your post. Good catch. Turn Tables are the never ending tune up, the more time you spend with them the better they sound.
