Not all tonearms feature a VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle) adjustment to fine-tune the height at the rear of the arm so that with the stylus sitting in the groove, the tonearm is parallel to the record surface, or to compensate for the correct SRA (Stylus Rake Angle).
The primary function of our key multi-step SRA Wedge efficiently is to redress when one doesn't allow VTA adjustment. One merely needs placing this spacer at the appropriate step to allow the right compensating angle for a precise SRA.
The wedge can be carefully inserted in front or at the rear portion between the headshell and the phono cartridge so to reach the optimal SRA. The six (6) step segment permits to dial-in for the desired VTA or proper SRA angle. When possible, the driven wedge may as well be pushed slightly farther inward to accentuate the tilt.
Carbon fiber comprises a reinforced composite material that offers excellent control over structure vibrational behavior. Its inherent resonant frequency naturally has a high Q factor, it is more elevated in frequency than other material that you would ordinarily find for a standard metal shim, and is equally known to possess a remarkably low damping factor, so it will be acoustically transparent.
The SRA Wedge is assuredly the perfect shim for the vinyl lover wanting to forge an optimal link between the record grooves and the phono cartridge stylus.
The wedge conveniently provides flexibility to the aware user by allowing correction angles from 0.6° to 1.5° degrees depending on which step position is used. Take into consideration that these values will vary depending on the cartridge length and its resting position.
The SRA Wedge is machined to exacting specifications and allows to be installed in between the 1/2" standard distant mounting screws thanks to its slim 9.5 mm broad dimension.
