I installed a new arm on my turntable a few days ago, precisely setting up the cartridge using arc protractor, digital scales and the Hi-Fi News test record. Viewing the stylus playing an album and also stationary on a mirror, it looked to be leaning very fractionally to one side so I decided to purchase this bubble spirit level to check 'azimuth'

This weighs only 0.2 grams so by reducing downforce by this amount, the bubble level is small enough to sit centrally on the headshell whilst playing an LP and a visual check can be done at any point across the surface

As I suspected, the bubble remained very slightly towards the centre spindle of the record so I re-set the tonearm with a curved shim to maintain alignment (3 cut pieces of post-it paper) under the left hand edge between tonearm and platter

Re-aligning the cartridge has resulted in the bubble running dead centre so I now know that azimuth is spot on - it also confirms perfect VTA as my arm has a micrometer for fine adjustment up-down and I can do this for any record should I wish

This is one of the most useful devices I have used in setting up a tonearm/cartridge and recommend this to anyone doing likewise

This level is not sensitive enough for leveling a tonearm in a turntable.
