In order to attain maximum channel separation, it may be possible to adjust the azimuth. Should the cartridge not be perfectly perpendicular to the record’s surface, the tonearm or headshell may require to be tilted a few degrees. Correct azimuth is established by observing the reflected image of the 2 parallel cartridge front lines. The cartridge’s front lines must form a straight line with the reflected lines. A flat mirror may also be used to facilitate this process.
There are 4 sets of screws included for mounting the cartridge to your tonearm. It is of great importance to use the right length of screws when mounting the cartridge. Using too long screws may stop the screws inside the cartridge resulting in insufficient mounting in the headshell. The choice of screw length is depending on the thickness of the headshell, and a maximum of 3 mm free screw length under the headshell. For headshells up to 2 mm use 3 mm screws. For headshells between 2mm and 3.5mm use the 5 mm screws from the packaging. For headshells between 3.5mm and 5mm use the 6mm screws. Mount the cartridge loosely to the headshell at this moment.
